began publication in 1961), greater computing power is making it more useful and widespread. Google's PageRank is based on the principle of citation analysis. Other bibliometrics applications include: creating thesauri; measuring term frequencies; exploring grammatical and syntactical structures of texts. The h-index The h-index is a number suggested by Jorge E. Hirsch in 2005 for the quantification of scientific output of individual scientific authors. It is based on the citations each article (paper) of an author gets. Hirsch writes: A scientist has index h if h of his/her Np papers have at least h citations each, y el otro (Np - h) papers have fewer than h citations each. This number has several advantages over other criteria, p. ej.., compared against the total number of citations, it is not very sensitive to a single paper that has many citations. Hirsch suggested the use of data from the Institute for Scientific Information's Web of Knowledge and found, p. ej.., that Edward Witten with 110 had the highest h-index among physicists. Other high scoring physicists were Marvin L. Cohen and P. W. Anderson. Google Scholar can also be used as the basis for the h-index computation, but will produce different numbers from classic citation index-based counts, as its citation numbers are sometimes dramatically different. For research fields such as Computer Science, Google Scholar is liable to produce a high h, largely due to traditional citation indexes' poor coverage of high impact conferences and Google Scholar's good coverage of web-based publications. For other fields that publish more in journals and whose scholars are less inclined to put pre-prints on the Web, a Google Scholar-based H is likely to be lower.
