Hello all,
  A colleague just returned from a conference on scholarly publishing in
Brazil, and commented on the extensive use of the Impact Factor in the
awarding of promotions, funding for research, and other benefits in
research and publishing.
  Can someone expand on this use of the IF in the region?
