Some typical h and g indices

The Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics has made these available for ten members of staff. The h index runs from 8 to 16, the g index from 16 to 42, citations from 244 to 1842, number of publications from 30 to 388. These compare with my g = 68 , h = 33, about a thousand publications, about seven thousand citations (Google Scholar). So AIAS is very much up there with the world leaders. In terms of detailed scientometrics it is the number one institute of advanced studies, including Princeton and Perimeter, Dublin Institute and so on. Other institutes and groups have not taken the time to build up a data bank of my type. It becomes very clear now why this data bank is so important and why I spend time and care to build it up.
