Abstract:
Impact factors of the journal(s) where a scientist’s research is published (and the citations received thereof) have acquired the status of a “surrogate” marker of the quality of research leading to an “impact factor mania”. In reality there are several other measures of the quality of research and its impact in real life. The subject is discussed on the basis of examples from personal researches.
