This paper analyses citations of journal articles to find out key bibliographic factors that have an effect on citation. It helps to understand the degree of measurable factors which affects to impact factor by scale and correlation analysis between each factors. It ensures moderating variables work to increase impact factor as a moderating effect. Five factors can be measured—the number of authors, the number of affiliations, the number of references, the number of pages, and the number of keywords—were selected. We found that five bibliographic factors have positive effects on citation. All of common bibliographic items, such as subject, nation, year showed general effects in the analysis to examine if the moderating variables increase or decrease the effects on bibliographic factors.
