Interested in the h-index? Sometimes called the Hirsch index? Scopus and Web of Science both provide this feature.
The h-index is based on a list of publications ranked in descending order by the Times Cited. The value of h is equal to the number of papers (N) in the list that have N or more citations.
WoS states on their help pages, “This metric is useful because it discounts the disproportionate weight of highly cited papers or papers that have not yet been cited. In the h-index example below, the h-index is 3 because there are 3 articles with 3 or more citations that appear above the green line.”
From a mailing list that I subscribe to, Bernd-Christoph writes, ” please remember that you actually don’t need any “calculator” to get the H-index. Just compile the proper list, sort it by citation rank and look at which place the rank is equal to the number of citations. This is the h-index.”
