    Generation of predicted citation distributions from journal impact factor values

    In my previous post, I demonstrated how the citation distribution for a given journal could be fit to a function defined as the difference of two exponentials. This function is characterized by two parameters, k1 and k2. I showed how these two parameters could be used to derive the journal impact factor (JIF). However, for a variety… Read More
