What is H-index?

H-index is a measure of “whole career” citation volume, allowing a measure of a person’s research impact

It is increasingly being used by universities as a measure of researcher impact, with increases in h-index being used in promotional assessments.

For example, an h-index=10 means that a person has 10 publications that have been cited at least 10 times

Important Notes

Your H-index is not static

Cite H-index calculations carefully.


"H-index calculated using Web of Science on 6 December 2012"

Your h-index will differ depending on the source

This is because different source data is used to obtain citation counts

Do not combine data from different sources to obtain one h-index.
