Inter-field nonlinear transformation of journal impact indicators: The case of the h-index
Abstract Impact indices used for joint evaluation of research items coming from different scientific fields must be comparable. Often a linear transformation –a normalization or another basic
Does the citation period have any effect on the informative value of selected citation indicators in research evaluations?
TLDR
The results show that the fundamental validity of citation indicators increases with time, however, if the goal of the analyses is to establish a ranking order, then even short citation periods are informative.
Improving Metrics to Rank the Research Performance
TLDR
The opportunities and the challenges in combining those patterns in one metric, especially for measuring the research performance in Indonesia, are discussed.
A theoretical model of the relationship between the h-index and other simple citation indicators
TLDR
The genesis of these two formulas are reviewed, their effectiveness with that of a number of instances taken from the well-known Glänzel–Schubert class of models for the h-index are compared, and the Lambert-W formula provides a quite robust and effective ready-to-use rule that should be preferred to other known formulas if one’s goal is to derive a reliable estimate of theh-index.
A Scientist's Impact over Time: The Predictive Power of Clustering with Peers
TLDR
A scalable, macroscopic methodology is developed that uses the articles' citation profiles to build a more abstract and high-level profile that characterizes a scientist, and is utilized to cluster scientists in a set of 'performance' clusters.
Retaining, resigning and firing: bibliometrics as a people analytics tool for examining research performance outcomes and faculty turnover
PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to shed light on the use of bibliometric indicators as a people analytics tool for examining research performance outcome differences in faculty mobility and
Bibliometric Epilogue: Measuring the Works of D.R.T. Zahn
TLDR
In this epilogue some bibliometric data are compiled in order to provide quantitative measures of the author's work and traditional indicators like the numbers of publications and received citations are discussed.
Impact Metrics : Variety , Value , and Context
Numerous quantitative indicators are currently available for evaluating research productivity. No single metric is suitable for comprehensive evaluation of the author-level impact. The choice of
Researcher and Author Impact Metrics: Variety, Value, and Context
Numerous quantitative indicators are currently available for evaluating research productivity. No single metric is suitable for comprehensive evaluation of the author-level impact. The choice of
h-index and its alternative: A Review
TLDR
The main objective of this article is to study all those indicators which have been proposed to evaluate the scientific impact of an individual researcher or a group of researchers.

A proposal for a dynamic h-type index
A time-dependent h-type indicator is proposed. This indicator depends on the size of the h-core, the number of citations received, and recent change in the value of the h-index. As such, it tries to
A variant of the h‐index to measure recent performance

TLDR
This work investigates a variant of the h‐index that considers only recent publications and is therefore more useful in academic hiring processes and for the allocation of research resources.
The influence of self‐citation corrections and the fractionalised counting of multi‐authored manuscripts on the Hirsch index
The Hirsch index or h‐index is widely used to quantify the impact of an individual's scientific research output, determining the highest number h of a scientist's papers that received at least h
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.
Predicting Scholars' Scientific Impact
TLDR
Among all citation indicators, the annual citations at the time of prediction is the best predictor of future citations, but future citations of a scientist's published papers can be predicted accurately butFuture citations of future work are hardly predictable.
Does the h index have predictive power?

  • 2007
TLDR
The findings indicate that the h index is better than other indicators considered (total citation count, citations per paper, and total paper count) in predicting future scientific achievement.
