Info : Summary points

Use of journal impact factors conceals the difference in article citation rates (articles in the most cited half of
articles in a journal are cited 10 times as often as the least cited half)

Journals' impact factors are determined by technicalities unrelated to the scientific quality of their articles

Journal impact factors depend on the research field: high impact factors are likely in journals covering large areas
of basic research with a rapidly expanding but short lived literature that use many references per article

Article citation rates determine the journal impact factor, not vice versa
