The Hirsch index (commonly referred to as h-index) is a biblio-metric indicator which is widely recognized as effective for measuring the scientific production of a scholar since it summarizes size and impact of the research output. In a formal setting, the h-index is actually an empirical functional of the distribution of the citation counts received by(More)

Consequently if the same scholar sits on the board of editors of two journals, those journals could have some common elements in their editorial policies. The proximity of the editorial(More)
During the Italian research assessment exercise, the national agency ANVUR performed an experiment to assess agreement between grades attributed to journal articles by informed peer review (IR) and by bibliometrics. A sample of articles was evaluated by using both methods and agreement was analyzed by weighted Cohen’s kappas. ANVUR presented results as(More)

Despite the huge literature on h-index, few papers have been devoted to the statistical analysis of-index when a probabilistic distribution is assumed for citation counts. 2 The present contribution relies on showing the available inferential techniques, by providing the details for proper point and set estimation of the theoretical. Moreover, some 2-index(More)
The structural properties of the network generated by the editorial activities of the members of the boards of " Information Science & Library Science " journals are explored through network analysis techniques. The crossed presence of scholars on editorial boards, the phenomenon called interlocking editorship, is considered a proxy of the similarity of(More)
