  • Really happy that Impact Factor's short comings are being recognized now . Several promising scientific talents have been nipped in the bud because they did not measure up in this assessment.
    Hope we will regain our ability to assess an article for its originality and rigour by reading as scientists and not rely on proxy measurements which may not be correct.
