Exclusion of overlapping projects: Statistics compiled with overlapping papers counted as a single paper

Relative Field Impact Factor: The impact factor of a journal is divided by the average impact factor in a field. An impact factor of over 1.0 indicates higher than the field average.

Normalized Impact Factor: The factor revises the highest ranking as 100 and lowest ranking as 0, using ranking in the field of the given journal.

Modified Impact Factor: The index is modified to place all journals in the range of 1 to 5 according to normalized impact factor (top 20% is 5 points, top 40% is 4 points, bottom 20% is 1 point, etc.).
