JIT 2016 Impact Factor

The 2016 2 Year Impact Factor for the Journal of Information Technology published in the Journal Citation Report (JCR) in mid-2017 was incorrect. The JCR's publisher, Clarivate, has acknowledged its error. It will not recalculate the 2016 Impact Factor. Based on information Clarivate has provided we have introduced a revised (unofficial) estimate of 4.6 to our 2 year Impact Factor on our journal product pages.
