Journal production and journal impact factors

Author
Organization
Abstract
We show that there exists a direct linear relation between journal production and impact factor. As a general rule, we observe that the more articles a ''normal'' journal publishes, the larger its impact factor, Review journals and translation journals are clear exceptions to this rule. Also, when considering disciplines, the fields of Mathematics and Chemistry seem to be large-scale exceptions.
