'Impact factor (IF)' has been practically the only indicator to assess
journal quality. However, it has various problems associated with citation
analysis, such as the effects of 'different sizes of audience' and 'biased
citation'. To overcome this, we here propose a new objective
index, 'perspective factor (PF)', which estimates the journal quality
independently of citation analysis. The relationship between IF and PF of
life science journals, published in 1997, for example, gives a positive
correlation when we excluded review journals and extremely high-IF
journals, which could not gain comparatively high PF values.
