The h-index attempts to measure both the productivity and impact of the published work. The h-index is not a static value; it is calculated each time you look it up. Each database will produce a different h index due to differing content (coverage and date ranges) being used.
The h-index expresses the number of articles (h) that have received at least h citations. For example, if an author has 12 papers in a particular database that have each been cited at least 12 times, the h-index will be 12. If an author has one paper that has been cited 12 times, the h-index will be 1. The higher the h-index the better.
The h-index is influence both by quantity (Scholarly Output) and publication impact (Citation Count). Originally conceived as a useful reflection of a researcher’s accumulated career, it is represented by a single number which stays the same or increases with time – it cannot go down.
The h-index metric is useful to benchmark activity in a way that relies on the balance between two fundamental aspects of performance – productivity and citation impact.
The most common tools for calculating h-index are...
