The h-index is a popular measure of publishing impact, where an author's h-index is represented by the number of papers (h) with a citation number ≥ h. For example, a scientist with an h-index of 14 has published numerous papers, 14 of which have been cited at least 14 times.

The resources below contain author profiles which list an h-index. Remember, this metric typically varies by source, so an author's h-index in Scopus may be different than the one in Google Scholar.
