Impact factors are often used as a tool for evaluating a journal’s quality. The 2017 Impact Factor takes into account citations in 2017 to papers published in 2015 and 2016. Bioscientifica also offer additional metrics for assessing journal and article quality and impact. All journals have article-level metrics which provide traditional usage data as well as Altmetric data.
