impact factors - summary

 Dear all,
 Yesterday, I asked about impact factors. Bellow, you will find a
 summary. Thank you very much for help,
 For impact factors of 1994, see:
 For impact factors of 1995, see:

 From Ralph Merkle:
 The journal Nanotechnology had a 1996 impact factor of 1.881, which
 placed it at the top of its category in engineering. (see:
 This is remarkably good for a new journal.  Phys Rev A (listed in the
 URL given below) had a 1992 impact factor of 2.157
 Impact factors for some physics journals are given at:
 A brief discussion of the impact factor, along with links to two
 articles on the subject, is at factor
 Here is a table with the Impact Factors(IF) of year 1996
