Citation metrics :
The number of times an academic journal article, book, or author is cited by other articles, books, or writers is known as the citation impact. The study of bibliometrics or scientometrics is based on the interpretation of citation counts as indicators of the significance or influence of academic work.
The h-index is an author-level metric that measures both the productivity and citation impact of the publications, initially used for an individual scientist or scholar. The h-index correlates with obvious success indicators such as winning the Nobel Prize, being accepted for research fellowships and holding positions at top universities. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications. The index has more recently been applied to the productivity and impact of a scholarly journal as well as a group of scientists, such as a department or university or country. The index was suggested in 2005 by Jorge E. Hirsch, a physicist at UC San Diego, as a tool for determining theoretical physicists' relative quality and is sometimes called the Hirsch index or Hirsch number.
It is yet another typical study metric employed by authors and researchers. Google Scholar has an i-10 index. Having publications with at least 10 citations can be used to define it. If an author's or researcher's i-10 index, for instance, is 6, it means that six of his or her papers have received 10 citations. I-10 index also contributes to giving any student profile more weight. The i-10 index's key benefit is how simple it is to calculate. Access to these measurements is simple and free thanks to Google Scholar.
