Universal Impact Factor {UIF} is founded for improving Impact Factors of journal with the help of its growing article database. A huge database of articles from various countries in different disciplines helps providing quality information to the researcher.
UIF maintains academic database services to researcher, journal editors and publishers. UIF focuses on : citation indexing, citation analysis, and maintains citation databases covering thousands of academic journals. Also UIF provides detailed report of individual journal for further improvement of respective journals overall look up and technical aspect for better Impact Factor.
The articles citation database is maintained by UIF's own Knowledge database service. This database also helps to researchers to identify which articles have been cited most frequently, who has cited them and find out the journal's Universal Impact Factor {UIF}. UIF also publishes the annual Journal Feedback Report which lists an overall improvement of journals that it tracks.
UIF also works on Immediacy index which denotes  the number of citations the articles in a journal receive in a given year divided by the number of articles published.
Within the scientific community, journal impact factors play a large but controversial role in determining journal impact factor to a published research articles. The list includes engineering, management and science journals and other all disciplines. Listing is based on published selection criteria and is an important indicator of journal quality and impact.
The Universal Impact Factor {UIF} is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" in a journal has been cited in a given period of time. The Universal Impact Factor is calculated by several scientific methods. Authors and research scholars normally wants to obtain quantitative measures of journals' quality and to know how different journals compare in these measures.
The Universal Imfact Factor {UIF}, a number calculated annually for each scientific journal based on the average number of times its articles have been referenced in other articles, was never intended to be used to evaluate individual scientists, but rather as a measure of journal quality. The impact factor is used to compare different journals within a certain field. The impact factor is highly discipline-dependent, perhaps due to the speed with which papers get cited in a field.
