Author Metrics

Find your H-Index in Various Sources

What is an h-index?

The h-index is an author-level metric that measures both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of an author. The index is based on both the number of papers published, and the number of citations those papers have received. The index was suggested in 2005 by Jorge E. Hirsch and is sometimes called the Hirsch index or Hirsch number.

It is important to know that an H-Index is a subjective concept.  There are various ways to find your H-Index  - and different sources will provide different numbers.  For example, the H-Index provided by Scopus is based on the articles included within the Scopus database.
