  journal={arXiv: Physics and Society},
Indexes that account for good representations of an individual's productivity are theme of major importance for the evaluation and comparison among researchers. Recently, a new index was proposed combining productivity with impact such that a researcher with index h has h papers with at least h citations. A drawback of this is the sensitivity to the research field. Here we propose a new index (hI) that accounts for the coauthorship effect. The statistics of h and hI are presented for Brazilian…

What do we know about the h index?

The advantages and disadvantages of the h index are described and the studies on the convergent validity of this index are summarized and corrections and complements as well as single-number alternatives are introduced.
