Abstract

We show that the h-index and the g-index, which are commonly used to mea- sure the research productivity of a scientist, may be seen as concentration indices. For these indices we also propose transformations that make them always ranging between two known limits, which correspond to the situation of null concentration and to that of high concentration. The approach is illustrated by an application to data coming from the bank sector in USA.
