Scholar H-Index Calculator

Scholar H-Index Calculator is a bibliometric and citation analysis tool which works as an addon for Google Chrome and Firefox. The Calculator enhances Google Scholar results pages by showing a number of bibliometric indicators computed using the data appearing on video as input. Once installed, the Calculator works transparently when querying Google Scholar: as soon as you make a query, result pages are enriched with a number of useful data (e.g., the h-index computed on the basis of displayed data), and new functions are available.
