How does AOP affect the calculation of impact factors?

Impact factors are calculated by The Institute for Scientific Information.

At present, ISI bases its calculations on the date of print publication alone.

It is possible that the ISI will choose to change this policy in the future, but under the present system, AOP has no effect on impact factor calculations.
