Calculation of the weighted impact factor (gIF):
Many journals have an impact factor (IF), which is updated annually. Also, each of these journals is assigned a subject category (e.g., anesthesiology). For the total number of magazines in a category, an average impact factor (mIF) per year is determined. (Information on the average impact factor can be found on the website of the isi web of science)
The weighted impact factor (gIF) is calculated as follows:
gIF = IF / mIF
For this calculation you must take into account the impact factor of journal in the year of publication of your work and the average impact factor for this year.
