In this study, the phonographic view of the acceleration of scientific publishing in Turkiye has been revealed with TuBITAK/DergiPark data , the values of the measurements of the impact factors of scientific journals have been sampled with the SOBIAD Index data. SOBIAD Index dataset was used in the study. Using the "full count" research method, the data were analyzed by providing access to the entire mass, which is the research population, based on purpose -oriented descriptive analysis. In the calculation of the impact factors of the articles in the SOBIAD index, multiple parameters such as the total number of citations of the articles in the journal, citation comparison (percentage) and area-weighted citation impact, new metric joint values and the similarity criteria in the content evaluation were determined. In the study, the measurement and evaluation standards of international impact factor measuring institutions (WOS-SSCI, Google Scholar, Eigenfactor Metrix and Elsevier/Scopus Index) were also used. According to the results of the research, while the average value of the impact factors of scientific journals in Turkiye is 0.19, this is seen as 6,19 in WOS-SSCI. With the research, the examination of the impact factors of scientific journals and articles in Turkiye was presented as an original review through the SOBIAD index sample. In order to increase the quality and impact factor of journal/article in academic publishing in Turkiye, qualified growth is required rather than quantitative growth.
