What is the h-index?

The h index is a metric for evaluating the cumulative impact of an author’s scholarly output and performance; measures quantity with quality by comparing publications to citations. The h index corrects for the disproportionate weight of highly cited publications or publications that have not yet been cited.

What is a good h-index score?

What is a Good h-Index? Hirsch reckons that after 20 years of research, an h-index of 20 is good, 40 is outstanding, and 60 is truly exceptional. In his paper, Hirsch shows that successful scientists do, indeed, have high h-indices: 84% of Nobel prize winners in physics, for example, had an h-index of at least 30.

How do I find my H factor?

1. Enter the name of the author in the top search box (e.g. Smith JT). Select Author from the drop-down menu on the right.
2. Click on Search.
3. Click on Citation Report on the right hand corner of the results page. The H-index is on the right of the screen.

Is an h-index of 40 good?

What are the Ranges? Per Hirsch: h index of 20 after 20 years of scientific activity, characterizes a successful scientist. h index of 40 after 20 years of scientific activity, characterizes outstanding scientists, likely to be found only at the top universities or major research laboratories.

What does an h-index of 12 mean?

H-index scores between 3 and 5 seem common for new assistant professors, scores between 8 and 12 fairly standard for promotion to the position of tenured associate professor, and scores between 15 and 20 about right for becoming a full professor.

What does H Factor mean?

H-factor is a kinetic model for the rate of delignification in kraft pulping. It is a single variable model combining temperature (T) and time (t) and assuming that the delignification is one single reaction.

What is h-index and how it is calculated?

What is the h-index? The h-index is a measure of the number of publications published (productivity), as well as how often they are cited. h-index = the number of publications with a citation number greater than or equal to h. For example, 15 publications cited 15 times or more, is a h-index of 15.
