A journal's impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the "average article" in a particular journal has been cited during a two-year period. Impact factors and other journal metrics can be found in several library databases. 

More information on journal metrics and how to find them can be found on the Indicators of Publication Research Impact guide.
