Question Hirsch factor, Hirsch index, Hirsch number alternative: Article Rank check by Science article index calculation of scientific research output

Dear All,

Now, we offer FREE BMT (BioMedTalk.com) articles ranking (h number, Hirsch index alternative) check service by article index calculation.
Members and Guests of BioMedTalk.com forum are welcome to check the BMT Articles Rank (AR, h number, Hirsch index alternative) of scientific articles published by researchers in the peer-reviewed professional journals by certain Author on Life Science and Biology, Health and Medical, Nutrition and BioTechnology research. This articles ranking is different from the article citation index calculated for each individual article, because calculation of the Articles Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) done for all articles published by certain Author.

There are recognized disadvantages of h-index, Hirsch index, Hirsch factor (John Mingers Measuring the research contribution of Management academics using the Hirsch index, 2009) some of which have led to the development of alternative to measures:
- The h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) for an individual can only ever rise, even after they stop publishing. It is directly proportional the length of a person’s career. This puts early career researchers at a disadvantage (Burrell, 2007b) and does not properly reflect a fall-off in productivity in later years (Sidiropoulos et al., 2006).
- The fact that the h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) is not influenced by very highly cited papers could be seen as a disadvantage. Given two people with a similar index, one could have papers with ten times more citations than the other but this would make no difference (Egghe, 2006).
-The h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) is clearly very different across disciplines as it reflects the publication patterns of the discipline.
-The h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) does not take into account patterns of co-authorship. These certainly differ between disciplines, but can also differ between countries within a discipline (Batista et al., 2006).
- h-Index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) is only a single measure and therefore cannot account for all aspects of research performance (van Raan, 2005).

Also, the h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) suffers from a fundamental problem, namely the problem of inconsistency. The problem of inconsistency cannot be solved by introducing yet another variant of the h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor). In fact, the problem is shared by all h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) variants. However, there turns out to be a very simple (and well-known) indicator that has similar properties as the h-index (Hirsch index, Hirsch factor) and that does not suffer from the inconsistency problem (Ludo Waltman and Nees Jan van Eck, Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM), 2009).

So, our index is an alternative to hirsch index (Hirsch factor, Hirsch index). By having wider threshold rather than h-index (Hirsch factor, Hirsch index), BMT (BioMedTalk.com) index is more sensitive compare to hirsh index calculator.

The article rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) calculation is based on quantity, quality of the scientific articles published by researchers in the peer-reviewed professional journals by certain Author and something else which is our know-how . We hope, that BMT (BioMedTalk.com) Articles Rank (AR, h number, Hirsch index alternative) is a nice way to identify the scientific impact for a person and more precise compare to calculating Hirsch index, hirsh (Hirsch factor, Hirsch index).

The Articles Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) is also helpful for background evaluation of potential
employee, your new Contacts and perspective Partners as well.


Form for the Articles Rank (AR, h number, Hirsch index alternative) calculation is located under the BioMedTalk.com logo.
Just delete an existing text "FamilyName Initials, e.g. Smith JH" in the Form and type the author's name, e.g.
Smith JH
multiple author names are also possible separated by OR, e.g.
Smith JH OR Smit JH
Click the "Go" button to retrieve the article impact by Article Ranking (h number, h index alternative).


To avoid homonym issues, affiliation (address [ad]) can be used to search for work done at specific institutions or city
(e.g., hospital [ad], bethesda [ad]). Just delete an existing text "FamilyName Initials, e.g. Smith JH" in the Form and type affiliation [ad] author's name, e.g.
London [ad] Smith JH
freeman hospital [ad] Smith BC
multiple affiliations are also possible separated by OR, e.g.
human stress signal research center [ad] Niki E OR university of tokyo [ad] Niki E
Click the "Go" button to retrieve the article impact by Article Ranking (h number, h index alternative).


Please, be sure that you are entering the author's correct name as well as correct name for the specific institutions or city.
By correct name means the name as it appears in english version of published article (or article's summary).
For instance, correct name of the specific institution:
university of cincinnati
incorrect:
cincinnati university

Also, to avoid homonym issues, full author names may be used for the articles published from 2002 forward if the full author name is available in the article. Enter a full author name, e.g.
Smith Jon H
freeman hospital [ad] Smith Jon H
into the Form for the Articles Rank (AR) calculation and click the "Go" button to retrieve the Articles Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative). In this case, the Articles Rank (AR, h number, Hirsch index alternative) will be calculated for the articles published from 2002 forward.

It is also a way to have Articles Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) calculated by year(s) using the date of publication [dp] to see the progress. See example as following:
2006[dp]:2010[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 58.80
2001[dp]:2005[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 31.30


Check the Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) of your Colleagues and Boss.
Hope, the Articles Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) will help you to evaluate background of your new Contacts and new Partners as well.


The highest Article Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) for today were found for:
1. Research field: cardiology and internal medicine
Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E with an article index of 144.5

2. Research field: Separation science and metabonomics
dalian institute of chemical physics [ad] Xu G with an article index of 110.55

3. Research field: Oxidative stress, free radicals, lipid peroxidation, antioxidants
human stress signal research center [ad] Niki E OR university of tokyo [ad] Niki E with an article index of 108.8

4. Research field: Endocrinology and Reproduction Research
National Institutes of Health [ad] Catt KJ with an article index of 102.05

5. Research field: Dairy science, food safety, microbiology
university of tennessee [ad] Oliver SP with an article index of 97.1


If somebody will find higher articles rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative), please, post in this thread.


The lowest Article Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) for today were found for:
Spain [ad] Aguera LG with an article index of 0.2
freeman hospital [ad] Smith BC with an article index of 0.1
Hope, the Articles Rank (h number, Hirsch index alternative) for everybody else are in between 0.1 and 144.0

Default Articles Rank and Hirsch factor, hirsh index (h index, H-number) alternative calculator

Kudos to BioMedTalk. I searched for Articles Rank of faculty of Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Madras where I work as Deputy Librarian. I found the results amazing. Could you enlighten us on How the calculation is being done. Is there any means to identify authors with same initials.
Awaiting your reply
Ambuja

I have some questions for you? Where is the site where should I put the name of the author? Can I put his name on every science site? I have to say that I've read what you have writhe here and I didn't understand much maybe because I'm very tired and I can't concentrated myself.

swiss88,
Sometimes the article rank (h number, h index alternative) calculation takes up to 5 seconds. So, be patient and wait until number will come. Now, the article rank (h number, h index alternative) calculation is working fine from my site. Hope, this works for you too.

Hello !
Does the article rank take into account a fundamental bias which is the position of the author among the authors ? (e.g. the rank should dnot be the same if the author is first or if he is fifth out of seven).
Thank you.

Patbas,
At this time, unfortunately, the articles rank (h number, h index alternative) does not able to determine difference between those authors who has articles published under the same family name, first and middle name initials. But, you are welcom to add authors affiliation. This is helpful for those authors (someone who publishes under the same family name and initials) but are working at the different Institutions.

You are welcome to suggest idea how to improve this issue.

Patbas,
At this time, fortunately, the articles rank (h number, h index alternative) takes into account first, last and other position of the author.

One simple way of doing it might be to include the name of the city in the search engine. Indeed it is rare to find a homonym in the same city. Do you think this is feasible ?

Default Hirsch factor, hirsh index (h index, H-number) alternative: Article Rank check by Science article index calculation of scientific research output

Patbas,
Thank you for your suggestion.
The point is that people are often moving from one working place to another. This will change the city name for the Author’s affiliation in published article. Also, as you mention a homonym of the Author’s first name in the same city is possible too.

So, publishers of many Journals decide to accept articles for publication with full first name, e.g., julia h smith. But, this innovation is effective since year 2002.

Full author names may be used for the articles published from 2002 forward if the full author name is available in the article. Enter a full author name, e.g.
smith julia h
into the Form for the Articles Rank (AR, h number, h index alternative) calculation and click the "Go" button to retrieve the Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative). In this case, the Articles Rank (AR, h number, h index alternative) will be calculated for the articles published from 2002 forward.

The note about homonym issue has been added to the first post of this thread.
Thank you once again for your comments.

wristbandsnow,
Thank you for the Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) evaluation and your nice words about it.

The article rank (h number, h index alternative) calculation is based on quantity, quality of the scientific articles published by researchers in peer-reviewed professional journals by certain Author and something else which is our know-how.

I guess the easiest way to go around the hiomonym issue would be to be able to chose the articles in a first screen. Unless people see this list, I think your measurement does not have any meaning. I am quite young, I work in biology and I must say I think I have a respectable article rank, but how can I be sure that my name doesn't match somebody else from a completely different field (say from medicinal sciences)?
If you want your rank to be taken serious it should be made more transparent. Best wishes

Dear op13kg,
Nice to have Member like you on a board!

To avoid homonym issues, affiliation (address [ad]) can be used to search for work done at specific institutions or city
(e.g., hospital [ad], bethesda [ad]). Just change the "FamilyName Initials ..." in the Form to the affiliation [ad] author name initials, e.g.
London [ad] Smith JH
freeman hospital [ad] Smith JH
and click the "Go" button to retrieve the Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative).

Hope, this make more sense for any as well as young scientist.

The note about homonym issue has been added to the first post of this thread.

Thank you once again for your comment.

Default Add multiple affiliations for Hirsch factor, hirsh index (h index, H-number) alternative calculator ?

Nice job! A fast way to identify the scientific impact for a person. Adding affiliation is a nice feature, however; most authors have moved, so it would be nice to enable multiple affiliations. Maybe even enable multiple author names?

rongch60,
Thank you for your suggestions.
Multiple affiliations as well as multiple author names functions were added. Please, check the Article Rank (h number, h index alternative) for authors whom you know. Is this working for you?

The note about multiple affiliations issues and multiple author names has been added to the first post of this thread.

Thank you once again for your comments.

Default displaying the articles that mapped the name for Hirsch factor, hirsh index (h index, H-number) alternative calculator

I think the best way to actually use these rankings, is to display the papers used for a particular name entered.

To add more, check box next to each of those articles can be provided with select-all / clear options, so the user may select all and clear out a few noisy ones, or do their own background research to select the few appropriate ones in a list of all false positives.

Eg, enter Dong Q, and the score is 264.7

It will be a useful tool, once I am sure it is scoring the person I intend to check!

Dear GXU,

1.
The BioMedTalk.com Articles Rank (AR, h number, h index alternative) is the way to identify the scientific impact for a person as an author of scientific articles published in the peer-reviewed professional journals. BioMedTalk.com Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) is not scoring the Laboratory or any other unit of researchers.

2.
BioMedTalk.com Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) for Xu G at Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics
can be found by entering into the form
Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics [ad] Xu G
If Prof. Xu G has been working at any other organization before you can enter multiple affiliation. Please, see first post of this thread for details.

Smile Questions on AR

I'm very interested in Articles Rank (AR) , can I ask some questions?
When I compare the AR for the scientists, I wonder what is the full mark of the AR? What is the AR of the top 1 scientist on a certain research?
Can I compare scientists on different research fields?

Li Xiang,
> Can I compare scientists on different research fields?

Definitely you can compare the Articles Rank (AR, h number, h index alternative) for different scientists who’s articles published on Life Science and Biology, Health and Medical, Nutrition and BioTechnology research.

> What is the AR of the top 1 scientist on a certain research?

Forum Members will appreciate if you will score authorities whom you know from different research fields.
Please, post in this thread authorities name, research fields and Articles Rank (AR, h number, h index alternative) returned.

Wink From Max Valentinuzzi/How the calculation is done.

I found this answer to the question of HOW THE RANK CALCULATION IS CARRIED OUT:

"The article rank calculation is based on quantity, quality of the scientific articles published by researchers in peer-reviewed professional journals by certain Author and something else which is our know-how."

Could you not give us more details? Otherwise, it is very difficult to evaluate the actual value and reliability of this Article Rank Index. I have been interested in the subject for many years and I am also the author of a related scientometric paper (Valentinuzzi ME, Laciar E, Atrio J (2007) Two new discipline-independent indices to quantify individual’s scientific research output. Journal Physics: Conference Series 90, 012018 doi:10.1088/1742-6596/90/1/012018).

Some results are really surprising and even conflicting with previous data.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Max E. Valentinuzzi,
Thank you for your post. Your article is very interested. So, I am providing a link to the PDF version of the article
Valentinuzzi ME, Laciar E, Atrio J (2007) Two new discipline-independent indices to quantify individual’s scientific research output. Journal Physics: Conference Series 90, 012018 doi:10.1088/1742-6596/90/1/012018.
http://www.iop.org/EJ/article/1742-6...5-d7d1f515e959

Those who are interested are welcome to download this article.
Please, be sure to open Adobe reader first and after this click on link provided to download the article. At least this order is working fine from my side.

As I can see from your article number of citations has been used in your index. We are trying to avoid number of citations because many Authors are self-citating they articles. So, self citation is negatively effecting index calculating based on number of citations.

The calculation for Authors with the highest, intermediate and the lowest H index provided in your article table 2, BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES is returning the next BMT (BioMedTalk.com) articles rank (h number, h index alternative):

Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
H 11.63
S/A 64.82
BMT (BioMedTalk.com) 134.15

Leiden University [ad] Baan J
H 5,20
S/A 443,51
BMT (BioMedTalk.com) 26.3

Spain [ad] Aguera LG
H 2.43
S/A 0.56
BMT (BioMedTalk.com) 0.2

As you can see BMT (BioMedTalk.com) articles rank is in line with H index. The higher H index is returning the higher BMT (BioMedTalk.com) articles rank. So, results are not surprising and not conflicting with previous data.

But, please, pay attention that H index is bringing the values closer together. H index is 11.63 for the highest Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E and 2.43 for the lowest Spain [ad] Aguera LG. It is only 4.79 times (11.63 / 2.43 = 4.79) or 9.2 points (11.63 - 2.43 = 9.2) threshold.

BMT (BioMedTalk.com, h number, h index alternative) index is 134.15 for the highest Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E and 0.2 for the lowest Spain [ad] Aguera LG. It is 670.75 times (134.15 / 0.2 = 670.75) or 133.95 points (134.15 - 0.2 = 133.95) threshold.
So, by having wider threshold BMT (BioMedTalk.com, h number, h index alternative) index is more sensitive compare to H index.

Thumbs up

Dear Sir (BMT),

I sure thank you and appreciate very much your kind and prompt reply along with the special computations you have made. My comments are honest and do not intend to question the procedure, they only requested more procedural details to better assess the index from a pure scientific viewpoint. Thank you also for comparing our results with yours.
Regarding the self-citations, yes, definitely, they should not be used for they distort the results. This is a well-known fact.
Would you be able to asses the validity of our claim regarding the discipline-independent characterist of the indices we propose? After its publication, I personally started to have some doubts about it.
How would you compare the Article Rank Index with our modified H? Would such a thing be possible?
What do you think of the S/A ratio?

Just for your information (not bragging), I have been for over 50 years in science and technology, especially in biomedical engineering. I will soon be 78, retired but still active in academic life, doing consultation. Right now I am finishing a book on cardiac fibrillation-defibrillation to be published by World Scientific Publishers, in Singapore.

It was nice and enlightening to get in touch with you and hope that we keep with this exchange.

Default Additional suggested features

1) I often publish under my first initial as well as my first two initials. The advantage is that when I use "J Smith" instead of "JA Smith" (not real names), my score goes way up. How does one eliminate the J Smith's that are not mine?

2) Is there a way to have your score calculated by year, so you can see your progress?

Texas Pathologist,
If you publish under your first initial as well as you first two initials, so try to use affiliation as following:
university of cincinnati [ad] Smith J OR university of Cincinnati [ad] Smith JA

(not real affiliation and names),

Hope this helps.

Default An interesting problem

When I add up all the sites I have been, I do not get my total number. Why is this?

It is also a way to have Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) calculated by year(s) using date of publication [dp] to see the progress. See example as following:

2006[dp]:2010[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 53.65

2001[dp]:2005[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 31.50

1996[dp]:2000[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 19.1

1991[dp]:1995[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 12.19

1986[dp]:1990[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 18.0

1981[dp]:1985[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 0.6

1976[dp]:1980[dp] Harvard Medical School [ad] Braunwald E
an article index of 0

P.S.
The note about Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) calculation by year(s) has been added to the first post of this thread.

Default Another suggestion

Sectioning into dates is wonderful.

Can one, on a larger space than current obviously, add together a series of articles by pubmed id? I have worked with people in Greece, Italy, Nigeria, The Netherlands, and China to do statistics for them, wherein the listed institution is in those countries.

I think this site is magnificent.

Texas Pathologist,
We have some sollution for this. Use name of one Author accompanied by the name of another author. The code will look like this:

AffiliationofAuthor1 [ad] FamilynameofAuthor1 in OR FamilyNameofAuthor1 in AND FamilyNameofAuthor2 in OR FamilynameofAuthor1 in AND FamilyNameofAuthor3 in

In your case
AffiliationofAuthor1 [ad] FamilynameofAuthor1 initials
will be your affiliation and your name and initials

FamilyNameofAuthor2 initials
will be the name and initials of your colleague from China

FamilyNameofAuthor3 initials
will be the name and initials of your colleague from Italy

in – is initials of each author.

This way will work better for the Articles Rank (h number, h index alternative) calculation than PubMed id, if you remember all names and initials for your co-authors from other countries.
I am sure you are remember all of them.
Hope this is helps.

I sure thank you and appreciate very much your type and immediate response along with the unique calculations you have created. My feedback are sincere and do not plan to concern the process, they only expected more step-by-step information to better determine the catalog from a genuine medical point of view.

Default Articles rank

Ok, now that I had my articles rank calculated, how can I see which of my articles were used to do it? How many times were they cited? Congrats!
