In a recent work by Anderson et al. (2008), Ferrers diagrams and Durfee squares are used to represent the scientific output of a scientist and construct a new h-based bibliometric indicator, the tapered h-index (h T). In the first part of this paper we examine h T , identifying its main drawbacks and weaknesses: an arbitrary scoring system and an illusory(More)

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) typically consist of a large number of densely populated sensor nodes. Due to important advances in integrated circuits and radio technologies, the use of distributed sensor networks is more and more widespread for a variety of applications, such as indoor navigation, environmental monitoring, people and objects tracking,(More)
Evaluating the scientific output of researchers, research institutions, academic departments and even universities is a challenging issue. To do this, bibliometric indicators are helpful tools, more and more familiar to research and governmental institutions. This paper proposes a structured method to compare academic research groups within the same(More)
Bibliometrics is a relatively young and rapidly evolving discipline. Essential for this discipline are bibliometric databases and their information content concerning scientific publications and relevant citations. Databases are unfortunately affected by errors, whose main consequence is represented by omitted citations, i.e., citations that should be(More)
Among the most recent bibliometric indicators for normalizing the differences among fields of science in terms of citation behaviour, Kosmulski (J Informetr 5(3):481–485, 2011) proposed the NSP (number of successful paper) index. According to the authors, NSP deserves much attention for its great simplicity and immediate meaning—equivalent to those of the(More)
