The h-graph is one way of displaying and comparing the productivity and impact of published work of scholars. The h-index is the method used which was developed by J. E. Hirsch.
The h-index is based on the highest number of papers included that have had at least the same number of citations. The graph shows a 45 degree line which models a 1:1 relationship between publishing articles and being cited. An author’s publishing history is mapped out on this graph, beginning with their publication with the highest citations to the lowest.
