Here is how the 2 year impact factor is measured:
The Journal Impact Factor is published each year by Thomson Reuters. It measures the number of times an average paper in a particular journal has been referred to.
The Impact Factor of journal J in the calendar year X is the number of citations received by J in X to any item published in J in (X-1) or (X-2), divided by the number of source items published in J in (X-1) or (X-2).
Impact factors aren't the best way to rank journals due to publication lags but this ranking seems to make sense. What I find interesting is how high JEEM shows up compared to the other top field journals. Journal of Financial Economics was #1 among Elsevier journals with 3.769 and Energy Economics came in at #3.
