Citation data resources at the library homepage & H-Index
Following an agreement with ISI, there is access to:
Essential Science Indicators database
It provides access to science performance statistics and science trends.
Information is derived from Thompson Scientific indexed journals.
Data may be searched by scientists, research institutes, countries or journals.
A list of highly cited papers during the last 10 years and "Hot Papers" from the last two years is available.
Available from 1995 -
Please note that we also have web access to Journal Citation Reports (JCR) 2003-2004.
(impact factor listing)
Both databases are accessed from the Web of Science link (Choose from the menu) or directly from the databases A-B list:
A note about H-Index: additional measure for ranking individual scientific research impact:
Jorge Hirsch, a physicist at the University of California, has proposed a new bibliometric measure for evaluating the research quality of individual researchers.
Called the "h-index".
Hirsch has defined "h-index" this way:
"A scientist has index h if h of his/her N papers have at least h citations each, and the other (N - h) papers have fewer than h citations each."
In other words what is important is the number of times each article was cited, not just the total number of citations.
Please see below links to the articles about it.
You can easily find the h-index for a given researcher using both ISI Web of Science or Scopus database.
Use the author search and just sort the results by "times cited".
