Is the h index the ideal way to measure research performance?
If the h index is used for the evaluation of research performance, it should always be taken into account that, similar to other bibliometric measures, it is dependent on the length of an academic career and the field of study in which the papers are published and cited. For this reason, the index should only be used to compare researchers of a similar age and within the same field of study.
