If your work is in the humanities, social sciences, the arts or in an emerging or niche discipline, quite often impact factors such as those readily available for natural and some social sciences will be non-existent. Therefore, you will need to gather other forms of information to include in your Form C in order to fully describe the journals where you publish and the reach of your work. This page offers some suggested avenues for finding such qualitative information.
MLA Directory of Periodicals (included in MLA International Bibliography) allows you to find information about a specific journal. Depending on the publication, you may be able to discover a variety of characterstics including acceptance rate, circulation numbers, and determine if the journal is peer-reviewed.
Ulrich’s Web (also in hard copy at reference desk Z6941 .U5) allows you to look up journal by title, and depending on the publication, discover circulation data, refereed/non-refereed status, editorial board members, audience demographics and review blurbs. There may also be a link to the journal's home page where more information can be found such as article acceptance rate.
WorldCat One of the many uses of this worldwide collection of library catalogs is answering the question, "How many libraries around the world own your book?" which can be an useful piece of data to include in your Form C.
