Abstract: Abstract Bornmann and Leydesdorff (Scientometrics, 2018. ) make an excellent case to use normalized citation based indicators instead of the h-index. In this Letter to the Editor we point out that h/P, p/P and i/P are all very simple and intuitive dimensionless citation indicators where h is the Hirsch h-index, p the performance index of Prathap, and i the value of impact as measured by the ratio of citations C to Publications P.
