An Empirical Study to Find an Approximate Ranking of Citation Statistics Over Subject Fields

J. Martin van Zyl ., Sean van der Merwe .


An empirical study is conducted to compare
citations per publication, statistics and observed Hirsch
indexes between subject fields using summary statistics of
countries. No distributional assumptions are made and
ratios are calculated. These ratios can be used to make
approximate comparisons between researchers of different
subject fields with respect to the Hirsch index.
