Calculator for H-index of Scientist Impact and Influence

Calculator for H-index of Scientist Impact and Influence http://www.epidemiologic.org/2006/12/h-index-calculator-of-scientist-impact.html
The H-index, developed by physicist Jorge Hirsch, is an index is designed to go beyond simple statistics such as the total number of citations or publications, to distinguish influential scientists from those who simply publish many papers. The H-index, which accounts for both is also not highly sensitive to single papers that have many citations. The H-index is relatively effective in comparing researchers working in the same scientific field, and not comparable across disciplines due to different publishing and citation patterns.
The H-index was recently also recognized and featured in an article published in Nature, "Index aims for fair ranking of scientists" Nature. 2005 Aug 18;436:900, which highlighted the H-index's potential use in informing decisions regarding a scientist's tenure, promotion, election to scientific bodies such as the National Academy of Science, and the Royal Society, as well as informative in determining a scientist's impact relative to Nobel Prize laureates.
