Background : With the advancement of knowledge, increasing science production and competition, evaluation of scientific products becomes one of the challenging and undeniable necessary subjects. In Iran, Deputy of Research for Ministry of Health uses H index as one of the scientometrics index for evaluation of research activities of the board members. In journals rating system Impact Factor index, is used. Purpose: This study aims to compare H index of the board members and impact factor in top… Expand


Research citation analysis of nursing academics in Canada: identifying success indicators.
Citation analysis metrics are useful for evaluating the research performance of academic researchers in nursing and are encouraged to protect the research time of successful and promising nursing academics, and to dedicate funds to enhance the research programmes of underperforming academic nursing groups.

Are there better indices for evaluation purposes than the h index? A comparison of nine different variants of the h index using data from biomedicine
this study, we examined empirical results on the h index and its most important variants in order to determine whether the variants developed are associated with an incremental contribution forExpand
Using the impact factor and H index to assess researchers and publications.
The impact factor as a means of assessing scientific journals and H index as a way of assessing researchers are discussed. Expand
The state of h index research
Owing to the availability and utility of the IF, promotion committees, funding agencies and scientists have taken to using it as a shorthand assessment of the quality of scientists or institutions, rather than only journals. Expand
The inconsistency of the h-index
It is argued that for the purpose of measuring the overall scientific impact of a scientist (or some other unit of analysis), the h-index behaves in a counterintuitive way and cannot be considered an appropriate indicator of a Scientist's overall scientificimpact. Expand
Since Hirsch’s first publication of the h-index in 2005 (Hirsch, 2005), this new measure of academic impact has generated a widespread interest. At the time of writing (January 2007) Google ScholarExpand

Universality of citation distributions: Toward an objective measure of scientific impact
It is shown that the probability that an article is cited c times has large variations between different disciplines, but all distributions are rescaled on a universal curve when the relative indicator cf = c/c0 is considered, where c0 is the average number of citations per article for the discipline.

I propose the index h, defined as the number of papers with citation number ≥h, as a useful index to characterize the scientific output of a researcher.
Scaling the h-index for different scientific ISI fields
We propose a simple way to put in a common scale the h values of researchers working in different scientific ISI fields, so that the foreseeable misuse of this index for inter-areas comparison mightExpand
