Title: Journal production and journal impact factors
Authors: ROUSSEAU, Ronald
van Hooydonk, G.
Issue Date: 1996
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
Citation: Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 47(10). p. 775-780
Abstract: We show that there exists a direct linear relation between journal production and impact factor. As a general rule, we observe that the more articles a normal journal publishes, the larger its impact factor. Review journals and translation journals are clear exceptions to this rule. Also, when considering disciplines, the fields of Mathematics and Chemistry seem to be large-scale exceptions.
