Google-based Impact Factor: 2.471 The impact factor (IF) normally is calculated by Clarivate Analytics based on the Web of Science (WOS). However, Google Scholar now provides an alternative Google-based impact factor. Google Scholar is the only openly available database suitable for journal metric calculation. It has a wide coverage and is a meaningful source. For this reason, IRJPEH is calculating its own Impact Factor by applying Journal Citation Reports (JCR) algorithm based on Google Scholar’s citation counts.
