Replication study gives thumbs up for the individual annual h-index

Applies the hIa index for a large sample of academics in the United Emirates

In 2014 I published a paper introducing a new research metric: the individual annual h-index or hIa for short.

A short summary of the hIa can be found in my white paper "From h-index to hIa..". Recently, James Ryan at the United Emirates University conducted a replication of our hIa study. As I argued in another blog, replication studies are essential for Science to progress.

Ryan's replication, which showed that the hIa performed very well with a qualitatively and quantitatively different sample, has now been officially published in Scientometrics.
