How to calculate your h-index

How to calculate your h-index Online

Do you need to calculate your (or someone else's) h-index? This impact metric can be used for many purposes, including tenure and promotion, grant or awards applications, and more.  This workshop will provide participants the practical hands-on skills you need to calculate an h-index, as well as an introduction to some of the issues involved with the potential uses (and mis-uses) of this metric.

Participants will:

  • Become familiar with the definition of the h-index metric;
  • Develop an awareness of the different databases that can be used to calculate an h-index;
  • Understand why different databases often show a different h-index for the same person;
  • Know what tools they can use if existing databases do not calculate their h-index accurately;
  • Be introduced to some appropriate and inappropriate uses of the h-index.

All faculty, students and staff are welcome!
