What is an h-index?
An h-index is a rough summary measure of a researcher’s productivity and impact. Productivity is quantified by the number of papers, and impact by the number of citations the researchers' publications have received.
How do I calculate my h-index using Scopus?
Step 1: First open the Scopus author search form and search for an author's name
Step 2: Select the correct entry from the author results
Step 3: View the Scopus author details page which includes the h-index
Troubleshooting: what if my publications are split into multiple author entries in Scopus?
That might be easily the case! If you have or had multiple affiliations, or one of the publishers did not put your middle initial on that paper, then you will end up with multiple entries in the author results page. There is no immediate action you can take to combine the results and get a newly calculated h-index, but you can send a request to merge authors. Simply select the author entries that should be combined and follow the instructions of the Scopus Author feedback wizard. The good thing is that the updated author entries will then be available to anyone, displaying the up to date h-index!
