In this paper we evaluate these metrics both theoretically and also through an empirical study of a large set of business and management journals.  ...  We conclude that no one indicator is superior but that the h-index (which includes the productivity of a journal) and SNIP (which aims to normalize for field effects) may be the most effective at the moment  ...  It is possible to time-limit the h-index, for example Google Metrics uses a 5-year h-index (Jin et al., 2007) .  The h-index is field dependent and so should be normalized in some way.  ...

Richard Smith
2013 ecancermedicalscience
