Impact factor

Impact factor

  • Citations to recent articles1784 = 4.092 (BJS 2006) 

    Number of recent articles 436     

  • Ability to predict citations is weak (Callaham JAMA 2002)

  • The IF of the publishing journal determines the number of citations of the article (Callaham JAMA 2002)


Relationship between if and the level of non citation within surgical journals

Relationship between IF and the level of non-citation within surgical journals

15% of articles account for 50%

of citations

Weale et al. BMC Med Res Methodol. 2004

Chinese IF 2006: 3.25 (2004-05: 12 articles, 39 citations)

Note: Nearly 50% of all publications from Poon et al. University of Hong Kong


How to increase the if

How to increase the IF?

  • Self citations – unethical? (Sevinc 2004)

  • Online availability (Murali et al 2004)

  • Online survey to ask for desired topics

  • Select authors on the basis of past performance
