Viewing Journal Impact Factor:
This tool can be helpful when assessing the quality and impact of a journal, though it is just one factor of many that are worth considering. For more information on assessing journal quality visit Finding a Quality Journal or ask a librarian in the Education & Research Services Department
Viewing the Times Cited:
This tool can be helpful not only for finding out how many times an article has been cited, but also to discover articles on the same topic. For more assistance on finding the times your article has been cited or for assistance with literature searching, contact the Education & Research Services Department.
If, after searching for a dissertation produced by a UAMS student in this Proquest database, you are unable to find it - you can also try looking in the UAMS Library Catalog for the dissertation.
