FIRST IMPACT FACTOR

The first official impact factor of the Review of Finance has just been published by ISI Web of Knowledge in June 2011. The current impact factor of the Review of Finance is 1.952, which is higher than that of the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis and the Journal of Financial Intermediation. It is lower than the impact factor of the Journal of Banking and Finance, which however is vitiated by a 72% self-citation rate. When computed without self-citations, the impact factor of the Journal of Banking and Finance according to the ISI Web of Knowledge is only 0.748, while the corresponding figure for the Review of Finance is 1.881.

Accounting for this self-citations outlier, the Review of Finance is the 4th finance journal in terms of impact factor.
