"The non-state-actor nuclear threat and the infrastructure of a country are defined and uniquely modeled in three separate modules: global chemical threat potential prioritization model (GCTP), global biological threat potential prioritization model (GBTP), and global nuclear threat potential prioritization model (GNTP). The individual results of these modules can be used for independent decision analysis or combined to look for larger trends regarding global threats. The technical threat potential captured within the G-CBN-TP is defined as a two-dimensional problem: the threat posed by a nonstate actor and the ability of a non-state actor to exploit the existing infrastructure of a country to develop a WMD/WME. The G-CBN-TP model is organized into a series of attributes, which define each of these dimensions.

Impact Factor of a scholarly journal is calculated by measuring the average number of citations to recent articles published in the particular journal. Impact factor gives the importance of a Specific journal with respect to other journals. Impact factor is calculated based on the average number of citations a paper published in a particular journal receives in a span of two years. Impact factor for the new journals will be considered after two years. Impact factor of a particular journal will give complete picture of the quality and standards of the journals. For example, if a journal has an impact factor of 5 in 2011, then its papers published in 2009 and 2010 received 5 citations each on average in 2011. The 2011 impact factor of a journal would be calculated as follows:
X = Number citation for the articles published during 2009 and 2010.
Y = the total number of articles published by that journal in 2009 and 2010
2011 impact factor = X/Y."
