Tax Notes is #1 by a wide margin in citations in law reviews (762 v. #2's Virginia Tax Review's 595), but fairs relatively poorly (.001, ranked #20) in the Impact Factor category (citations/number of articles published).  My guess is that W&L counted as "articles" all of the advance sheet material in Tax Notes. (Note:  I omitted the NYU Journal of Law and Business from the above chart because it is not a tax journal.)

Comments

While elder law has many tax-related issues, are elder law journals truly tax journals? Elder law touches a broad range of issues including family law, health law, immigration law, and disability law. Some articles or notes may have no relationship to tax law at all. While the two overlap, I don't view elder law as a subset of tax law.
