Assignment: To calculate & analysis of g-index and h-index of Ph.D. Faculty Members of IICT, University of Sindh

Description of h-Index:

A scientist has index h if h of his/her N papers have at least h citations each, and the other (N-h) papers have no more than h citations each.

To calculate the h-index, the papers written by an academic are arranged in decreasing order of number of citations. The h index is where the number of papers equals the number of citations (beginning with the paper with the highest number of citations).

Description of g-Index:

g-index is a variant of the h-index, which takes into account the citation evolution of the most cited papers over time.

A set of papers has a g-index g if g is the highest rank such that the top g papers have, together, at least g^2 citations.
In another words, the g-index g is the largest rank (where papers are arranged in decreasing order of the number of citations they received) such that the first g papers have (together) at least g^2 citations.

For example, if 2 scientists have h-index 4, it may happen that one of them has published 4 papers which have 4 or more citations, while another scientist may have published 10 papers out of which 3 have more than 100 citations and the 4th paper has 4 citations, and the remaining have less than 4 citations.

In an attempt to offer a higher weighting to the second scientist who in aggregation has received greater than 304 citations for 10 papers, the g-index was proposed. Thus in our example, the first scientist has g-index=4, while the second scientist has g-index significantly higher.
