REFINED (SUCCESSIVE) H-INDICES: AN APPLICATION TO ECONOMICS IN THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND

Frances Ruane () and Richard Tol

No FNU-130, Working Papers from Research unit Sustainability and Global Change, Hamburg University

Abstract: We rank economics departments in the Republic of Ireland according to the number of publications, number of citations, and (successive) h-index of research-active staff. We increase the discriminatory power of the h-index by introducing two ancillary indices. The first (h+) measures the excess over the actual h-index, while the second index (h?) measures the distance to the next h-index. The latter index is readily used to make the h-index a rational number.
