Observations on Citation Indices/Metrics

Results for the h-index, i10-index and total number of citations show similar trends as other Engineering fields, increasing with the level of staff seniority. With the exception of the h-index and total number of citations at the Professor level, all of the above indices and metrics are higher for Electrical Engineering staff at all seniority levels than for the other Engineering fields.

The m-index for the Electrical Engineering field is most variable for staff seniority level, with no clear increasing trend with seniority level. This trend in the m-index is based on relatively large staff numbers and participation rate suggesting the median values are a good representation of the staff landscape. This should allow all metrics and indices to be fairly robust indicators of nationally significant research impact rates across the Electrical Engineering field.
