Navigation, a journal published by The Institute of Navigation, has experienced continued growth according to the latest Journal Impact Factor (JIF) report.

The JIF of an academic journal is a measurement tool used to calculate the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal and is an indication of the relative importance of the journal within its field. It is generally recognized that journals with higher impact factors are deemed more important than those with lower ones due to its citation rate.

Navigation’s Journal Impact Factor is now 1.604, an increase from 0.979 last year and 0.562 the year before. Total citations have increased by more than 270 percent over the past two years.

“We are especially pleased with our strong performance,” said Boris Pervan, Navigation‘s editor. The increase in Navigation‘s impact factor is reflective of ION’s commitment to improve the quality and content of the papers published in the journal.
