Refined (Successive) H-Indices: An Application To Economics In The Republic Of Ireland
We rank economics departments in the Republic of Ireland according to the number of publications, number of citations, and (successive) h-index of research-active staff. We increase the discriminatory power of the h-index by introducing two ancillary indices. The first (h+) measures the excess over the actual h-index, while the second index (h?) measures the distance to the next h-index. The latter index is readily used to make the h-index a rational number.
