For a set of papers, ranked in decreasing order of the number of citations that they received, the h-index is the (unique) highest number of papers that received h or more citations. In the references [1,2,7,9] one describes some advantages of this new scientometric indicator: It is a simple single number incorporating both publication (quantitiy) and citation (quality or visibility) scores and hence has an advantage over these single separate measures and over measures such as "number of… 
Theory and practise of the g-index
TLDR
It is shown that the g-index inherits all the good properties of the h-index and better takes into account the citation scores of the top articles and yields a better distinction between and order of the scientists from the point of view of visibility.

take the equal rank. It does not count the citations, means it ignores theimpact of the publications. Since it is easy to calculate,therefore it is still being used for academic promotions inPakistan
A Bibliometric Index Based on Collaboration Distances
TLDR
The h-index counts only those papers that are significant enough according to their number of citations, following the widely accepted idea that not all papers should count equally.
The e-Index, Complementing the h-Index for Excess Citations
TLDR
The e-index, where e 2 represents the ignored excess citations, in addition to the h 2 citations for h-core papers, is proposed, a necessary h-index complement, especially for evaluating highly cited scientists or for precisely comparing the scientific output of a group of scientists having an identical h- index.
Fractionalized counting of publications for the g-Index
TLDR
Here it is proposed that in the specification of the new gmindex the articles are counted fractionally not only for the rank but also for the average, so the resulting gm-index is always smaller than the original g-index.
The h(³) – index of academic journals
The objective of this paper is to show that the already existing h((3)) indicator, designed after the h-index and Kosmulski's h((2))-index, has some advantages with respect to the classical h- or
Do we need the h index and its variants in addition to standard bibliometric measuresq
TLDR
This study investigates whether there is a need for the h index and its variants in addition to standard bibliometric measures (SBMs) and proposes the use of any pair of indicators relating to the number of papers in a researcher's productive core as a meaningful approach for comparing scientists.

An informetric model for the Hirsch-index
TLDR
It is shown that in each practical situation an IPP always has a unique h-index, which is based on the total number of items in Lotkaian systems.

TLDR
L'index-h, fonde sur le nombre de citations recues, mesure l'activite de publication and l'impact en citations, c'est un indicateur utile avec d'interessantes proprietes mathematiques, mais qui ne saurait se substituer aux indicateurs bibliometriques courants plus sophistiques.

A new indicator for the assessment of the research performance of individual scientists was suggested by Jorge E. Hirsch in 2005. Several opportunities and limitations of this new measure are

TLDR
The time dependence of the /7-index is determined and it is shown that h is a concavely increasing function of time, asymptotically bounded by T1 ∞.
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.
