|Title:||Publication performance without calculations: an analysis based on the p-index|
|Publisher:||Indian Academy of Sciences|
|Abstract:||In universities and other research institutions, critical decisions (e.g., hiring, promotions, awards, and research funds allocation) are supported by bibliometric measures. The present study contributes to the literature by proposing a measure of publication performance. Our index (p'-index) takes the p-index suggested by Prathap (2010a,b) as starting point. With a small adjustment in the p-index, we obtain a measure that does not require any form of calculations. We build a table (presented in this study as online appendix) showing the final performance scores for each combination of: (i) total number of papers and (ii) total number of citations. The evidence shows that this new metric is almost perfectly correlated with the p-index (0.999), meaning that we can reach the same conclusions without having to make calculations.|
