Ewha Ranked Third in the SCI Quality Assessment of Journals

Modified Rank Normalized Impact Factor(mrnIF) is a complementary indicator of 'Impact Factor' that shows deviation among research areas. Ewha has recorded 1.048 mrn Impact Factor while 1.0 is the average level of all journals in the world. The mrnIFs of major countries are 1.066(U.S.), 1.044(U.K.), 0.947(Japan), 0.896(China), and 0.924(Korea).
