  • Abstract The journal cited frequency is usually an index to weigh an academic research achievement and may provide useful information for the academic society. However, it is spectulated that it may be influenced by factors such as the citing frequencies of other journals, the price of the journal and so on. In this work, as an initial attempt we will investigate the correlation between the citing frequency and cited frequency in the same journal. The data is taken the JCR (Journal Citation Reports) annually published by ISI (Institute for Scientific Information) to understand the relationship between citing and cited patterns. Moreover, Impact Factor from the JCR has also been used as a basis of ranking, we will discuss about the variation in journal ranking in all fields based on Markov chain modeling. The ranking based on a modified impact factor will be used to compare with that by the original impact factor provided by the JCR.
