The Janeway Factor was an informal term used by Captain Braxton with regards to Captain Kathryn Janeway of USS Voyager. Braxton considered Janeway's meddling with the timeline a major annoyance, and coined the term to describe it. (VOY: "Relativity")

One of the occasions he listed included when Voyager traveled back to 1996 to stop Henry Starling, and then left Braxton on 20th century Earth. (VOY: "Future's End", "Future's End, Part II")

Braxton's remark could have referred to any of these incidents.

Braxton warned Seven of Nine to "watch out for the Janeway Factor." When Seven responded that she was not familiar with the protocol, he replied that her Captain had a knack for sticking her nose where it didn't belong, though Seven felt that Janeway could be a helpful resource. Braxton was not persuaded and ordered her directly to avoid contact with Janeway. (VOY: "Relativity")
