Citation index and H-index

Citation indexes and the h-index are the most common methods of evaluating the impact of authors. The h-index measures a researcher's relative impact on his/her discipline. 

How to create a citation report?

  1. Use the Author field on the Search page (or choose Author Search instead of Basic Search)
  2. Enter an author's name and initials to create a list of works the author has written
  3. Click the Citation Report link to analyze the citation activity to these items

Add the correct affiliation details!

It's important that the address field of all UMCG scientific publications contain the following string:

University of Groningen, University Medical Center Groningen, ….,

The order of this string is crucial for the ranking of the University and the UMCG!
The addition of departmental or other details is recommended, but only AFTER this string.

Corresponding author

This also counts for publications on which the UMCG has participated with a corresponding author outside the UMCG or the University Groningen.
