What is a H-Index?

A journal’s “H Index” measures its perceived impact based upon the published work of a specific researcher(s) who is (are) cited within the work.  In other words, the H-Index reflects the total number of publications and citations from a given researcher included in a specific journal.  It may only be used to effectively measure and compare researchers within the same field of study, and only the most highly cited articles contribute to the H Index measurements.
