  • Thus, the impact factor of a journal is calculated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years
    Voorbeeld uit Wikipedia:
    In a given year, the impact factor of a journal is the average number of citations to those papers that were published during the two preceding years.[1] For example, the 2008 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows:
    A = the number of times articles published in 2006 and 2007 were cited by indexed journals during 2008 B = the total number of "citable items" published in 2006 and 2007. ("Citable items" are usually articles, reviews, proceedings, or notes; not editorials or Letters-to-the-Editor.) 2008 impact factor = A/B
