We are pleased to announce that the QJF has received its first journal impact factor and it has scored 0.7 for 2022. This is a significant milestone for the journal, as it provides a quantitative measure of its influence in the scientific community. Being assigned an impact factor also reflects the QJF's increasing visibility and reputation, so we hope that you consider the journal as an outlet for your research.
