Title
A disadvantage of h-type indices for comparing the citation impact of two researchers
Author
Abstract
We show that the rank-frequency functions of two researchers usually intersect. As a consequence of this, different h-type indices can conclude on different impact judgements of the two researchers. Also in this paper a new indicator is proposed: the average number of citations per paper in the papers whose ranks are smaller than or equal to the intersection point of their two rank-frequency functions. The theoretical derivations are illustrated using an empirical example.
