I'm writing an academic CV for a PhD application and they have asked for the standing of journals or conferences of published articles.
Include articles published or accepted for publication (with the three most significant marked with an asterisk). Please specify the publication details, your contribution as an author to multi-authored publications, plus the standing of the journal or conference.
I'm really not sure what they are looking for or how to express this. Is it the impact factor of the journal? And what about conference proceedings which don't have impact factors?
Use something that the selection committee can easily verify. I would use Google Scholar Metrics and provide the h5-index and h5-median values. The good thing about Google Scholar is that it also automatically generates these numbers for most major conferences. Be sure to mention the following Google disclaimer in the footnote:
"Dates and citation counts are estimated and are determined automatically by a computer program."
