|Title: ||Citation distribution of pure mathematics journals|

|Abstract: ||Garfield defined the impact factor of a journal as the ratio of the
number of citations which this journal receives in the course of a
given year to the number of articles published by that journal within
the two preceding years.
We chose the field of pure mathematics for an experiment to see how
impact factors change when calculated in another way.
We first derive some mathematical formulae on raw data for impact
factors. Then we present our results on impact factors for pure
mathematics journals when calculated over several years and we study
the orderings resulting from these impact factors. We moreover study
the relation between mathematics journals and some life sciences
journals (with comparable 2-year impact factors).|
