''On the Robustness of the h-index: a mathematical approach''
( 2008, Vol. 3 No.78 )
The h-index is an index recently proposed by Hirsch (2005) to measure scientific achievement by individual scholars. It is a compound measure of publications and citations. We show the robustness of this index. This means that h-index increases with both the number of publications and the number of citations only when these numbers are significant.
