It is possible to create an author citation report on the Web of Science.
To do this, login to Web of Science and click on the down arrow on the Web of Science home screen and select Author.
Type in the author's surname and initials (or first name).
You will see an author profile with information such as the list of publications and the h-index.
To create an Author report in Scopus, click on Author Search and type in the author's surname and first names or initials and click Search.
From the list of results, click on the author's name. This should produce an Author details page.
This shows the list of the author's publications which are indexed on Scopus and also a list of the publications which cite them.
It is possible to produce an author citation report and analyse the author's output and see any co-authors.
The h-index ( the Hirsch index) is a combined measure of both productivity and impact. An index of h means that your h most highly-cited articles have at least h citations each, e.g. a researcher's h-index will be 5 if 5 of their articles have been cited at least 5 times.
The h-index is more informative than the total number of articles or the total number of citations (which can be inordinately influenced by a small number of highly-cited articles and therefore not an accurate reflection of productivity).
The h-index can be calculated by using the following tools:
There are a number of limitations and cautions to be taken into account when using the h-index. These include:
As the number of publications increases each year, it can be difficult for researchers to keep track of recently published materials in their disciplines.
A few factors may increase the visibility of your publication:
