We've already discussed about which bibliometric indeces are diffused the most, and how they work.
We all know that, along the most common h-index, there are many other parameters deriving from it or similar to it. From Publish or Perish website, we can list:
- g-index: Egghe's g-index
- hc-index: the contemporary h-index
- individual h-index: its three variations hI-index, hI-norm, and hm-index
Between these (and other) bibliometrics indeces, which one do you trust more? Which one do you think is the best one to get the scientific excellence of an author? Why?
