Q. Finding h-index in Scopus
About the h-index
- h-index is a number which represents a combination of a number of publications and the number of citations of those publications
- h-index is subject specific and should not be compared across different disciplines
- h-index increases with time and so early carrier researchers are disadvantaged
- not all authors will have a h-index calculated for them by Scopus and Google Scholar
- Scopus: publications need to be indexed by Scopus (Scopus applies rules to selecting publications to index) for a h-index of an author to be available (if publications are not indexed, a request for indexing may be submitted)
- Google Scholar: a profile must be created by an author before h-index can be provided by Google Scholar
- it is possible for an author to only have a h-index in one, Scopus or Google Scholar, and not the other
- Google Scholar h-index will generally be higher than Scopus h-index
- h-index is not calculated by CRO team

To find h-index of an author, click on ‘Authors’, then fill in their surname, first name and click ‘Search’.
Depending on the author’s name, there may be a number of results and it will be necessary to find the correct entry.
Note: If multiple entries for a same author exist, it is possible to request a merging of these entries. This can only be done by the author.
Once the author’s details are displayed, a few listed publications should be checked against the list of publications on the author’s academic profile to ensure correct Scopus profile has been reached.
The h-index is displayed on the right-hand side of the screen.
