I want to report on my Scopus H-index and relevant metrics to demonstrate my research impact. How can I do that?
1. Search for the Author (Author search) using Scopus
2. Checking subject areas and affiliations make sure you are looking at the correct profile
3. Check if any author profile corrections is required
4. Communicate that with Scopus via the 'Request author detail corrections' link
5. For author profiles with more than 1 document attached, click on the first column (name of the researcher) hyperlink to view the Scopus Author level metrics in the profile
6. Click into 'Analyze Author output' for a rich dashboard of features to further explore the author related metrics in more depth.
I want to report on my Web of Science H-index and relevant metrics to demonstrate my research impact. How can I do that?
I want to report on my Google Scholar H-index and relevant metrics to demonstrate my research impact. How can I do that?
You can make a case about the impact of your career of producing research outputs (productivity) and the impact of the outputs collectively (citation counts) based on your h-index in Google Scholar.
If you have a Google Scholar Citations account it helps you to take control of your own publication information and it displays your h-Index as part of that.
When a publication collects at least 10 citations each the author's i10-index is calculated. This is an alternative measure to the h-index.
This is a metric that can be used to benchmark the performance of the Author. The benchmark should be used to compare against researchers with similar research area interests, in similar institutions and with similar length of career, etc.
The performance of the Author is often benchmarked during decisions about tenure, promotion, or recruitment.
Author-level metrics are used to help measure, assess or benchmark the research productivity and research impact of individual researchers, scholars, academics, and/or authors.
Consider the accepted norms for your field of research, institution or country.
Use a reproducible method to collect the metrics used in your (Author) impact report.
The h-index was proposed by J.E. Hirsch in his paper An index to quantify an individual's scientific research output.
A scientist has index h if h of his/her Np papers have at least h citations each, and the other (Np-h) papers have no more than h citations each.
Which tools are traditionally used to provide an author h-index? - Google Scholar; Publish or Perish (based on Google Scholar data); Web of Science; Scopus
The g-index was proposed by Leo Egghe in his paper Theory and practice of the g-index, Scientometrics, 69(1), 131-152. https://dx.doi.org/10.1007%2Fs11192-006-0144-7
[Given a set of articles] ranked in decreasing order of the number of citations that they received, the g-index is the (unique) largest number such that the top g articles received (together) at least g2 citations.
The Individual h-index divides the standard h-index by the average number of authors in the articles that contribute to the h-index, to help with reducing the effect of co-authorship.
The individual, average annual increase of the h-index called hI,annual was proposed in hIa: An individual annual h-index to accommodate disciplinary and career length differences, Scientometrics, 99(3), 811-821. https://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11192-013-1208-0
The average annual increase in the individual h-index is useful as it could help to
