The use of impact factors and the ranking of publications is due to four factors: the rationalization of expertise, as a taken-for-granted feature of bureaucratic authority; the politics of higher education regulation and control, as manifest in the new managerialism and associated research assessment exercises; the pricing and finance of commercial scholarly publishing; and the increasingly staged drama that editors and their journals are expected to produce, even when they see themselves as hosts of conviviality and thought, as opposed to line employees in C.V. manufactories.
