My articles related to the h-index and h-type indices
I have removed most items from this list as, in my opinion, the h-index and the h-type indices have become standard tools in the field.

Introduces the R-index an improvement on the A-index, the g-index and the h-index

. In Proceedings of ISSI 2007 (Torres-Salinas & Moed, eds). Madrid: CINDOC-CSIC, pp. 514-522.
Applies the h- and the g-index to library loan data. Shows that Kosmulski's H2-index is not powerful enough.
Yuxian Liu and Ronald Rousseau. Definitions of time series in citation analysis with special attention to the h-index . Journal of Informetrics, 2(3), 2008, 202-210.
Draws attention to the fact that there are many types of h-index time series and proposes a notation to distinguish between them. The approach used here can,
however, be applied to any type of time dependent citation analysis.
R. Rousseau. Simple models and the corresponding h- and g-index. E-LIS: ID code: 6153
Studies some simple models and proposes a real-valued h-index. Only available in the E-LIS preprint archive.
R. Rousseau. Ci-speed: a Hirsch-type citation speed index for a set of articles. ISSI Newsletter, 6(3), 2010 (issue 23), p. 62-65.
Freely available at the ISSI website. I think this is a better approach than the one published by Bornmann, Egghe and Guns in JOI.

Technology, 59(14), 2305-2311, 2008.
An elaboration of Jin's idea to incorporate the age of a publication in the calculation of the h-index. Includes the history of my personal h-index.

A proposal for fractionally counting authors, possibly even taking their position in the byline into account.
