What is the H Index and How Do I Find It

The h-index or Hirsch index is a metric that aims to measure the impact of an individual researcher on his/her field. It can be thought of as a personal impact factor. Tthe h-index assesses both the quantity and quality of a researcher’s papers. It is based on the highest number of a researcher’s papers that have received at least that same number of citations.
