You can find your h-index either in Scopus or Web of Science. Please see the instructions below of how to do this.

Finding an h-index in Scopus

You can create an h-index for a single author and any matched authors.

  1. Access Scopus through Library Search. Run an author search. A list of author search results opens.
  2. From the author results list, click the name of the author you want to evaluate. The author details page opens.
  3. From the author details page, click ‘View h-graph’. The Analyze Author Output page opens with the h-index tab selected.

You can interact with the results to change the date range, select ‘Exclude self citations’ or select ‘Exclude citations from books


Finding your h-index in Web of Science

  1. Access Web of Science through Library Search.
  2. Enter the name of the author in the top search box (e.g. Smith JT). Select Author from the drop-down menu on the right.
  3. Click on Search.
  4. Click on Citation Report on the right hand corner of the results page. The H-index is on the right of the screen.
