Why The Impact Factors of Journals in the field of mechanics is Too Low in comparison with Chemistry?

Sometimes we cite Chemistry guys' papers, but they never cite our papers! :)

Low impact papers may be:
1) bad quality papers; but most of the time they are NOT, but
2) more product (or application) oriented papers.

It is really unfair, and sometimes naïve, to judge a paper solely by its impact factor.

 

Yeah, that's right, I agree with Tan. We cannot judge a paper by its impact factor, also , we cannot abuse the impact factor of Journals.
