*Unofficial 2016 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2015 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 than, impact factor = Y/X
