Authors: Egghe, Leo
Liang, Liming
Rousseau, Ronald
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: JOHN WILEY & SONS INC
Citation: JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR INFORMATION SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, 60(11). p. 2362-2365
Abstract: Using a power-law model, the two best-known topics in citation analysis, namely the impact factor and the Hirsch index, are unified into one relation (not a function). The validity of our model is, at least in a qualitative way, confirmed by real data.
