Bibliometrics and h-index

Bibliometrics involves quantitative analysis of scientific publications. It can, for example, be used to measure productivity in number of publications, measure the impact of publications as expressed in number of citations, or to study collaboration patterns and topic structures.

Bibliometrics analysis can be of great value during the research process and prior to publication of your research results by:

  • supporting your choice of journal for publishing,
  • identifying most individual researchers' output,
  • describing collaboration between researchers within and outside their research fields, and
  • identifying the most cited journals and publications within a specific research field.

What is h-index and how to find it

The h-index captures research output based on the total number of publications of one researcher combined with the number of citations of those works, providing a focused snapshot of an individual’s research performance. The index works best when comparing scholars of similar career length working in the same field, and who publish in the same journal categories, since citation conventions differ widely in different fields.

Finding your h-index in Scopus

  1. Go to Scopus.
  2. Under Author search, enter your last name, your first name, and click Search.
  3. On the next screen you will find your Scopus author profile. If there are multiple researchers with the same name, you will get a list of profiles. The h-index is available in the third column.

Finding your h-index  in Web of Science Core Collection

  1. Open WoS Core Collection and enter Author Search. Enter your last name, your first name, and click Find.
  2. On the next screen you will find your Web of Science author record, with the h-index on the right-hand side. If you want to verify your list of publications, click Claim this record. This will also give you the option to send corrections to Web of Science.

Analysing of your publications patterns and scientific impact

Get advice on bibliometrics and the evaluation of research outreach in general, as well as help conducting bibliometric analyses of your citations, publications patterns and impact or mapping your research field. We can help you help with:

  • publication statistics and citation data on department or research group level,
  • collaborations with other universities on a research group or individual level,
  • analyses of the individual researcher using h-index, the total amount of citations, and the most cited publications,
  • analyses of journals by IF (impact factor) and other measurements,
  • evaluation of publications and research output using altmetrics.

Always make sure to write your affiliation correctly to ensure that your publications will be accredited to Lund University. Write affiliation according to this format: Unit, Institution, Organization, City, Country.

Dual affiliations

If you are affiliated with more than one organisation, for example both Lund University and Region Skåne, dual affiliations should be added according to the examples below. Enter the affiliations separately. Researchers at Region Skåne, are recommended not to use Region Skåne since this is not an applicable affiliation.
