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.
- Access Scopus through Library Search. Run an author search. A list of author search results opens.
- From the author results list, click the name of the author you want to evaluate. The author details page opens.
- 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
- Access Web of Science through Library Search.
- 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.
- Click on Search.
- Click on Citation Report on the right hand corner of the results page. The H-index is on the right of the screen.
