A simple (and fair) way all statistics journals could drive up their impact factor.

Hypothesis:

If every method in every stats journal was implemented in a corresponding R package (easy), was required to have a  companion document that was a tutorial on how to use the software (easy), included a reference to how to cite the paper if you used the software (easy) and the paper/tutorial was posted to the relevant message boards for the communities of interest (easy) that journal would see a dramatic bump in its impact factor.
