h-Index h-index developed in 2005 by Jorge Hirsch, University of California in San Diego Attempts to quantify productivity and apparent scientific impact of a scientist. “A scientist has index h if h of his/her Np papers have at least h citations each, and the other ( Np − h) papers have no more than h citations each”. For example, an h-index of 20 means that the researcher has 20 papers each of which has been cited 20 or more times Calculated by Scopus, WoS , Google Scholar, but only for those papers within the database 29/10/2013 2


g-Index g-index - distribution of citations received by a given researcher's publications Devised by Leo Egghe in 2006 “Given a set of articles ranked in decreasing order of the number of citations that they received, the g-index is the (unique) largest number such that the top g articles received (together) at least g 2  citations.” g-index - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 29/10/2013 3
