|Title: ||On the correction of the h-index for career length|
|Authors: ||Egghe, L.|
|Issue Date: ||2013|
|Citation: ||SCIENTOMETRICS, 96(2), 563-571|
|Abstract: ||We describe mathematically the age-independent version of the h-index, defined by Abt (Scientometrics 91(3), 863-868, 2012) and explain when this indicator is constant with age.
We compare this index with the one where not the h-index is divided by career length but where all citation numbers are divided by career length and where we then calculate the new h-index. Both mathematical models are compared.
A variant of this second method is by calculating the h-index of the citation data, divided by article age. Examples are given.|
