A quick look at the impact on h-index

Journal H-index Calculator: Under this name is a statistical indicator, a mathematical formula designed to measure your academic value. "H" for "Hirsch", named after the physicist Jorge E. Hirsch who developed this statistical instrument in 2005. This indicator is calculated from your bibliometric data. Today, anyone can easily, in a few clicks, know the h factor of any researcher in the world - including yours.
This indicator combines two types of variables: the number of articles you have published in your life (or, more accurately, the number of articles in the electronic databases available) and the number of times your articles were quoted by Others. To express the matter technically, you own a factor h if a number h of your articles received for each h quotes or more. If you have written 30 articles, but none of your articles has ever been quoted, your h factor is 0. If 4 of your articles were quoted 4 times or more, you have a h factor of 4, and and so on.
This index makes it possible to go beyond the simple measurement of the number of articles or citations, while allowing only a comparison of the researchers within the same field (the citation conventions may vary).
In Physics, a mid-level researcher should have an hour approximately equivalent to the length of his career, while for biological and biomedical scientists this value is generally higher.
Cited references in Scopus go back to 1970: A quick look at the impact on h-index

A quick look at the impact on h-index

Over the past 3 years, Scopus content has significantly increased in depth. In addition to already including content records back to 1823, Scopus has added over 160 million cited references to its database, dating back to 1970. This allows you to construct long-term, extensive bibliometric and historic trend analyses, and has resulted in more complete author profiles and h-index measurements for individuals who began publishing prior to 1996.

Journal H-index Calculator
Early into the cited reference expansion program, we shared an example of how the addition of pre-1996 cited references impacted the h-index of senior researcher, David Neal. Prior to the expansion program, a portion of his 113 documents published prior to 1996 would not have been included in his overall citation count and thus his h-index would be negatively impacted. 7 Months into the project, approximately 3,146 citations were added to his overall citation count resulting in his h-index increasing to 67. Now, with the project almost at completion, a total of approximately 4,413 citations have been added and his h-index is currently 75.
The case of David Neal is just one example of the difference the Cited Reference Expansion Program has made. Look for more examples in future posts.

Quick facts on Scopus numbers now:

  • Total items indexed in Scopus = over 66 million
  • Number of serial titles (journals, trade journals and book series): 22,748
  • Number of books indexed: 140,000
  • Oldest item in Scopus dates back to 1823
  • Cited references go back to 1970

    Asian Economic Policy Review

    Edited By: Takatoshi Ito, Kazumasa Iwata, Colin McKenzie and Shujiro Urata
    ISI Journal Citation Reports @
    Online ISSN:1748-3131
    © Japan Center for Economic Research

    Aims and Scope
    The goal of the Asian Economic Policy Review is to become an intellectual voice on the current issues of international economics and economic policy, based on comprehensive and in-depth analyses, with a primary focus on Asia. As such, articles in the Journal will not be purely academic research or political commentaries. Instead, stress will be placed on identifying key issues at the time - spanning international trade, international finance, the environment, energy, the integration of regional economies and other issues - in order to furnish ideas and proposals to contribute positively to the policy debate in the region. Although the principal focus is economic policy issues, when necessary and relevant, international relations papers will also be included.

    Economic and Labour Relations Review

    The Economic & Labour Relations Review is a double-blind, peer-reviewed journal that aims to bring together research in economics and labour relations in a multi-disciplinary approach to policy questions. The journal encourages articles that critically assess dominant orthodoxies, as well as alternative models, thereby facilitating informed debate. It particularly encourages articles that adopt a heterodox approach to economics, or that explore rights-, equality- or justice-based approaches to labour relations or social policy.

    Submissions must be research-based and demonstrate high standards of scholarship. At the same time they must be clear, accessible to the well-informed lay reader and free from jargon. Each submission must articulate clearly the question being explored, and its relevance to an international readership, or to a current policy or theoretical debate. The theoretical, methodological or empirical approach to addressing that question must be outlined. In general an article must make an original contribution to theory or policy by:

    Developing a new concept or theory and explaining its derivation and policy or empirical implications; or
    Using a systematic analysis or mapping of a literature in order to provide a new critical perspective or write a ‘position paper’ on current debates or relevant policy issues ; or
    Using a literature review to derive a researchable question and then use empirical analysis to test an explanatory model that seeks to answer it.
    Authors are expected to build on work published in the journal wherever possible, by reading past issues of the journal in order to engage with debates and themes that are relevant to their submission.

    The 8000 word limit includes the title, abstract, keywords, text, references, notes, tables, figures, matrices and author biographies. Quantitative articles need to report only those results that help build the overall argument. Additional results and analysis such as additional descriptive statistics and correlation matrixes, full details of factor analysis, regression models and sensitivity analyses, can be published on the journal website as supplementary files, and will be used by the editor and referees to evaluate the MS. Submissions must be edited in UK English and in journal house style.

    The following are likely to fall outside of the journal’s scope:

    Papers focusing on mathematical or econometric analysis for its own sake
    Overly abstract theoretical pieces.

    Science Citation Index

    Science Citation Index (SCI)

    The Science Citation Index (SCI) is a citation index originally produced by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) and created by Eugene Garfield. It was officially launched in 1964. It is now owned by Clarivate Analytics (previously the Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters). The larger version (Science Citation Index Expanded) covers more than 8,500 notable and significant journals, across 150 disciplines, from 1900 to the present. These are alternatively described as the world's leading journals of science and technology, because of a rigorous selection process.

    The index is made available online through different platforms, such as the Web of Science and SciSearch. (There are also CD and printed editions, covering a smaller number of journals). This database allows a researcher to identify which later articles have cited any particular earlier article, or have cited the articles of any particular author, or have been cited most frequently. Thomson Reuters also markets several subsets of this database, termed "Specialty Citation Indexes", such as the Neuroscience Citation Index and the Chemistry Citation Index.
