When there are a group of articles and the present time is fixed we can determine the unique number h being the number of articles that received h or more citations while the other articles received a number of citations which is not larger than h. In this article, the time dependence of the h-index is determined. This is important to describe the expected career evolution of a scientist's work or of a journal's production in a fixed year. We use the earlier established cumulative nth citation…

The πv-index: a new indicator to characterize the impact of journals

TLDR
For determining the eminence of scientific journals, a new indicator stressing the importance of papers in the “elite set” (i.e., highly cited papers) is suggested, using the πv-index which is field and time dependent and closely correlated with the citedness (C/P) of Pπv papers.

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.

An improvement of the h-index: the g-index

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

Hirsch's h-index: A stochastic model

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.

Distributions of the h-index and the g-index

In every scientific research area, each scientist has a unique h-index and g-index. This paper addresses the problem of determining the distribution of these indexes over the scientists. We apply

Generalized Hirsch h-index for disclosing latent facts in citation networks

TLDR
The effectiveness and the benefits of the new indices are exhibited to unfold the full potential of the h-index, with extensive experimental results obtained from the DBLP, a widely known on-line digital library.

Generalized h-index for Disclosing Latent Facts in Citation Networks

TLDR
Several inefficiencies of the h-index are demonstrated and a pair of generalizations and effective variants of it are developed to deal with scientist ranking and with publication forum ranking.

Generalized h-index for Revealing Latent Facts in Social Networks of Citations

TLDR
Several inefficiencies of the h-index are demonstrated and a pair of generalizations and effective variants of it are developed to deal with scientist ranking and with publication forum ranking.

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.

TLDR
This chapter discusses informetric models, the dual approach between sources and items giving rise to the definition of Information Production Processes, and some science policy applications.

Power Laws in the Information Production Process: Lotkaian Informetrics

TLDR
This book discusses Lotkaian Informetrics of Systems in which Items can have Multiple Sources and Construction of Fractional Size-Frequency Functions Based on Two Dual Lotka laws.

Index aims for fair ranking of scientists

‘H-index’ sums up publication record.

Does the h-index for ranking of scientists really work?

TLDR
It was found that on average the h-index for successful applicants for post-doctoral research fellowships was consistently higher than for non-successful applicants.

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.
