The h-Index, or Hirsch index, measures the impact of a particular scientist rather than a journal. "It is defined as the highest number of publications of a scientist that received h or more citations each while the other publications have not more than h citations each." 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.
Note that an individual's h-index may be very different in different databases. This is because the databases index different journals and cover different years. For instance, Web of Science calculates an h-Index using all years that an institution has subscribed to. (So a Web of Science h-Index might look different when searched through different institutions.)

This tool requires a gmail account. A Google account is necessary to create a research profile. Follow the instructions on Google's page and add all your articles captured in Google Scholar. This will show all the times the articles have been cited by other documents in Google Scholar. It is your choice whether you make your profile public or private but when you make it public, you can link to it from your own webpages and in email messages.
