The h-index measures the productivity and citation impact of a certain author. It is important to note that different resources use different algorithms and the h-index can be higher or lower depending on the resource used.
Scopus can generate a h-index for publications and citations from 1970 to current. This feature allows for removal of self-citations from the overall citation counts.
Web of Science
Web of Science allows for generation of the h-index for publications and citations from 1970 to current using the "Create Citation Report" feature.
The h-index can be generated for authors who have created a Google Scholar profile.
Publish or Perish
Publish or Perish is a software program that provides the h-index by retrieving and analyzing citations from Google Scholar.
