Mingers, J. (2008) Measuring the Research Contribution of Management Academics using the Hirsch-Index. Working paper. University of Kent Canterbury, Canterbury 10.1057/jors.2008.94.
There is an increasing emphasis on the use of metrics for assessing the research contribution of academics, departments, journals or conferences. Contribution has two dimensions: quantity which can be measured by number/size of the outputs, and quality which is most easily measured by the number of citations. Recently, Hirsch proposed a new metric which is simple, combines both quality and quantity in one number, and is robust to measurement problems. This paper applies the h-index to three groups of management academics – BAM Fellows, INFORMS Fellows, and members of COPIOR – in order to evaluate the extent to which the h-index would serve as a reliable measure of the contribution of researchers in the management field.
