Q: How does the h-index works in ROS?


The h-index in ROS is generated from results that have been drawn in from the citation databases of Web of Science, Scopus and others, from the search settings that you have setup in the Publications area of ROS.  If you seem to have a low h-index it is best to check these settings to see that they are set for your name variants, addresses and other such details.

Within certain disciplines, an academic’s H-Index is intended to be a measure of both the quality and sustainability of their publications, by taking into account the number of citations for individual papers and the number of papers for which high citation scores are achieved.

It is calculated by plotting the number of citations (c) against papers ranked by citation count. The H-Index (h) is the rank of the last paper where the number of citations exceeds the ranking.

It is important to note that citation rates and customs will vary considerably between academic fields, and comparisons should only be made within single disciplines.
