Greetings!

Could anyone of the net.gurus enlighten me about how the "impact factor"
is calculated and who does it? As far as I understand, there are IF's for
journals as well as for scientists and clinics (universities, groups...). 
-Huh?

Second, if someone had the IF number(s) of one of the following journals
handy, I would be thankful for e-mail (will post summary!): 

The Lancet
New England Journal of Medicine
Transplantation
Transplantation Proceedings
Transplant International
Hepatology
Surgery
Journal of Cell Science
Cryobiology 

Why? ...Hmm, well I *just* wanted to know, nothing in particular, eh...
...oh, blast it!	<:-)



and sorry if it's a faq!
