Citation Indices

The following consider only my journal articles and are correct as of August 2015.

h-index: 3

Various metrics are used to compare scientists against one another; the h-index is one of these. This particular metric estimates the author’s productivity and ‘citeability’. An h-index of n, means that n of the author’s journal articles have been cited at least n times. All metrics have their advantages and disadvantages. They are best used when comparing scientists at similar career levels.

g-index: 6

Various metrics are used to compare scientists against one another; the g-index is one of these. This particular metric estimates the average number of citations per article, though it is not just simply the total number of citations divided by the total number of articles. The g-index is calculated by, firstly, ranking articles by number of citations in descending order. The number of citations for each article is then cumulatively added together and compared to the square of the ranking at that cumulative total. The g-index is the lowest rank whose square is larger than, or equal to, the cumulative number of citations. All metrics have their advantages and disadvantages. They are best used when comparing scientists at similar career levels.

Google Scholar and the NASA Astrophysics Data System also list my publications and major conference abstracts and quote the number of citations. These databases may not include references to some journals and so may be incomplete. Citation counts for individual articles can also be found at the publishing source online – please follow the links to the published article webpages.
