The Institute of Navigation (ION) is pleased to announce that NAVIGATION, Journal of the Institute of Navigation, has recorded its sixth consecutive year of growth of its Journal Impact Factor (JIF).

The JIF, an index that calculates the yearly average number of citations to recent articles published in a journal, is considered a bellwether of the relative importance of a journal within its field. A journal with a higher impact factor generally is viewed as being more important than those with a lower impact factor due to its citation rate.

NAVIGATION’s JIF has now increased to 2.1, representing a consecutive seven-year increase.

NAVIGATION’s JIF growth reflects the continued focus and leadership of the Journal’s Editor, Richard B. Langley, and the entire Editorial Board, which includes: Penina Axelrad, Daniele Borio, Michael Braasch, Liang Chen, Pau Closas, James Curran, Naser El-Sheimy, Paul Groves, André Hauschild, Christopher Hegarty, Changdon Kee, Jiyun Lee, Sherman Lo, Gary McGraw, Michael Meurer, Thomas Pany, Boris Pervan, Jason Rife, Andrey Soloviev, Todd Walter, Zheng Yao, Zhen Zhu, and the Journal’s Managing Editor, Lisa Beaty.
