How are you performing as an author across all of your publications? How often have you been cited?
An author has an h-index of n when the author has had n papers cited n or more times.
For example, Graham H. Timms was an author on seven medicinal chemistry papers between 1989 and 2006, which were cited 7, 16, 9, 13, 53, 4, and 7 times respectively (data from Web of Science). To calculate the h-index manually, enumerate the articles in descending order of citation count:
|Article Number||Times Cited|
The last article number (in this case, number 6) which is less than or equal to the corresponding citation count (7) is the author’s h-index. So, Graham H. Timms has an h-index of 6, that is, he has had 6 papers cited 6 or more times.
The h index can be restricted to a specific timeframe simply by only including articles published during that period. This might be appropriate for calculating an h-index for the period since a member of faculty’s previous promotion.
Created for Google Scholar, the i10-index is a count of the number of an author’s publications with at least 10 citations. In the case of Graham H. Timms above, his i10-index would be 3. Google Scholar includes an i10-index metric in its author profile.
