Eigenfactors, JIFs, h-index, and g-index

June 8, 2009

What is a Journal Impact Factor?  How does it relate to the h-index or the eigenfactor?

I came across this article a few weeks ago, and just happened to be talking about it today with one of our clients.  Good to know history behind the JIF (did you know a librarian invented it?), the h-index, and the g-index, and current efforts in this area.
