Age-weighed citation rate (AWCR) and AW-index
- Measures the average number of citations to an entire body of work, adjusted for the age of each individual paper.
Individual h-index (original)
- Divides standard h-index by the average number of authors in articles, in order to reduce the effects of co-authorship.
- Uses fractional paper counts to account for shared authorship and then determines the multi-authored hm index.
Individual h-index (PoP Alternative)
- First normalizes the number of citations for each paper by dividing the number of citations by the number of authors (hl,norm), then calculates the h-index..
Average annual increase in the individual h-index (hl, annual) (PoP)
- Calculates the average annual increase in hI,norm.
- Minimizes impact of discipline-specific publication and citation patterns.
- Reduces the effect of career length on metrics.
