Impact Factor of your Journal Valid?

Members of editorial board of any journal frequently face a common question, what is the impact factor of your journal? Even I have faced this situation umpteen number times on various occasions. Therefore I wish to utilize this platform to discuss this important issue. Bogus impact factor agencies and predatory journals are playing on front foot as they have gone one step ahead after assessing the academic market of demand and supply. True academicians need to be cautious about the racket of valid and invalid impact factors.
