A New Scientific Indexing Model: U-Index

by   Ugur Saglam, et al.

H-index has become more popular nowadays and is used for some scientific performance criteria in the world widely. This indexing method does not correctly measure any performance or carrier specifications because of the parameters that are used to form the measurement basis. H-index is located based on citation(C) and paper(N) parameters that involve no logical criterion on the counting process and so measurement on this basis can only give quantity results not any quality information. Therefore, we need a new indexing instrument to find out also the scientific quality unique to an individual author even if that takes into account the effect of multiple coauthorships. Ipso facto, we create a new bibliometric indicator or academic performance indicator called the u-index.
