Dears, I am wondering on who decides the Impact Factor of a journal? I am a writer, reader, and editor myself and consequently come across several papers. What surprises me though has to do with the inconsistency of ratings. The Ethiopian Journal of Health Development, one of the best in the country is rated low despite all the good work the journal has done over the years. I checked all the indicators and I believe the journal deserves more rating. So, I wish to hear from whoever is involved in rating journal.
Appreciate genuine and positive response
