Benefits of a Web of Science ResearcherID
Limitations of ResearcherID:
h-index: The h-index, or Hirsch index, measures the impact of a particular researcher rather than a journal. "It is defined as the highest number of publications of a researcher that received h or more citations each while the other publications have not more than h citations each (Schreiber, 2008a)." The h-index is included in Web of Science. For example, a scholar with an h-index of 5 had published 5 papers, each of which has been cited by others at least 5 times.
