In this podcast, Nandita and Matthew discuss Web of Science and the upcoming changes to how Clarivate will assign journal impact factors for scholarly publications. Nandita provides some helpful background explanations about impact factors and Web of Science for the non-specialist and tells us how Clarivate prefers impact factors to be used in the world of scholarly communication. Nandita then discusses Clarivate's upcoming plan to assign impact factors to the Emerging Sources Citation Index and the Arts and Humanities Citation Index and what this means for the impact factor in the near future.
