Analysing Scientific Networks Through Co-Authorship
Co-authorship is one of the most tangible and well documented forms of scientific collaboration. Almost every aspect of scientific collaboration networks can be reliably tracked by analysing…
A Hirsch-type index for journals
SummaryWe suggest that a h-type index - equal to h if you have published h papers, each of which has at least h citations - would be a useful supplement to journal impact factors.
Relative indicators and relational charts for comparative assessment of publication output and citation impact
Cross-field comparison ofscientometric indicators1 is severely hindered by the differences in publication and citation habits of science fields. However, relating publication and citation indicators…
A new classification scheme of science fields and subfields designed for scientometric evaluation purposes
A two-level hierarchic system of fields and subfields of the sciences, social sciences and arts and humanities is proposed, specifically designed for scientometric purposes with the ultimate goal of classifying every single document into a well-defined category.
A systematic analysis of Hirsch-type indices for journals
Double effort = Double impact? A critical view at international co-authorship in chemistry
It was found that international co-authorship, in average, results in publications with higher citation rates than purely domestic papers, and no correlation has been found between the strength of co-Authorship links and the relative citation eminence of the resulting publications.

Hirsch-index for countries based on Essential Science Indicators data
The authors present ranked lists of world’s countries — with main focus on EU countries (together with newly acceeded and candidate countries) — by their h-index on various science fields, attempting to fit a recent theoretical model relating the h- index with two traditional scientometric indicators: the number of publications and the mean citation rate.
A bibliometric analysis of international scientific cooperation of the European Union (1985–1995)
The citation attractivity of these publications shows that international scientific collaboration is particularly advantageous for less advanced countries, but also highly industrialised countries benefit from it.
Using the h-index for assessing single publications
- A. Schubert
- 1 March 2009
A Hirsch-type index can be used for assessing single highly cited publications by calculating the h-index of the set of papers citing the work in question by measuring not only the direct impact of a publication but also its indirect influence through the citing papers.
