Auhtor(s): Sen, B..K. ,
Journal:Malaysian Journal of Library & Information Science
Volume:4, No 2
Year:1999
Keywords:Impact factor, Citations.
Abstract:Enumerates some conditions that affect the impact factor of a standard research journal to undergo change. Shows with mathematical proof that the impact factor of a journal will tend to increase or decrease with the increase or decrease in the number of standard research journals covered by a database, or with a substantial change in the com-position of content of a journal. The inclusion of more articles of higher citation generation potential will tend to increase its impact factor and lower citation generation potential will tend to bring it down.
