Check out Becker Library’s new h-index Video!

Have you heard of the h-index, but perhaps have questions about what it is precisely, how it is calculated, and how it should be interpreted? 

A new video from Becker Library, Understanding the h-index, can help answer your questions about this author impact metric. Scholarly Publishing Librarian Amy Suiter walks you through how to calculate an h-index, discusses some of the limitations of the h-index, and suggests sources that can be used to help calculate a score.
