The Eigenfactor is a journal metric, which was developed by Bergstrom and his colleagues at the University of Washington . It establishes the importance, influence or impact of a journal based on its location in a network of journals . While journal-basedmetrics have been criticized, it has also been suggested as analternative in the widely used San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment(DORA) The algorithm is based on Eigenvector centrality, i.e. citations between journals, and the importance is defined based on the number of citation between journals .
