"IMPACT FACTORS: USE AND ABUSE"

1. "Use of the absolute values of impact factors, outside of the context of other journals within the same subject area, is virtually meaningless."
2. "Extending the use of the journal impact factor from the journal to the authors of papers in the journal is highly suspect
."
3. "The value of the impact factor is affected by the subject area, type and size of a journal,... fluctuate from year to year...
."

Вот.
Между тем типичный разговор за чаем:
- Как там у вас со статьями?
- Да вот, публикнулись в Х.
- И сколько у Х импакт?
- У Х Y.
- Неплохо. Кстати, что-то у Z импакт упал.

и т.п. и т.д. Легко же любую идею довести до маразма.
