Citations Counts in Books or Chapters
Proposed by Egghe in 2006 to overcome a bias against highly cited papers inherent in the h-index. The g-index is another author-level citation metric. It measures the distribution of citations of an author's citations over time.
Measures the impact of a particular scholar. For example, a scholar with an h-index of 5 had published 5 papers, each of which has been cited by others at least 5 times. The h-index is included in Web of Science and Scopus.
