초록

연구자 성과 평가를 위해 널리 사용되는 h-지수는 일관성 부족 문제와 공저자 수를 고려하지 않는다는 문제를 가지고 있다. 이를 극복하기 위해 h-지수와 g-지수, 그리고 공저 보정 방안을 검토하고 2004년부터 2013년 사이의 실제 KCI 데이터를 대상으로 분석해본 결과는 다음과 같다. 첫째, 일관성 결여 문제를 해소하기 위해서는 g-지수를 사용하는 것이 더 바람직하다고 판단된다. 둘째, 연구 성과의 양적인 측면과 질적인 측면을 한꺼번에 반영하는 복합 지수라는 h-지수와 g-지수의 고유한 특성을 유지하기 위해서는 반드시 공저를 보정하여 지수를 측정해야 한다. 셋째, 공저자 수로 나눈 인용빈도를 사용하는 hC-지수와 gC-지수를 적용하면 단독 저술 비중이 높은 인문학 분야 연구자도 공정하게 평가할 수 있고, 특정 분야나 특정 기관에 속한 연구자가 상위 순위를 과점하는 현상을 방지할 수 있다.

Abstract

The h-index is a popular bibliometric indicator for evaluating individual researchers. However, it has been criticized for its inconsistency with reflecting increased number of citations and disregarding the number of co-authors in a paper. In order to overcome these problems, we examined the g-index and other Hirsch-type indices considering the number of co-authors. Test data collection was extracted from Korean Citation Index database published from 2004 to 2013. The results of this study are as follows: First, g-index is more reliable indicator than h-index with consistency. Second, number of co-authors must be considered to maintain the h-index as an complex indicator applying the quality and the quantity of research performance. Finally, hc-index and gc-index, with fractionalised counting of the papers, can fairly measure the research performance of humanities researchers, and successfully prevent specific disciplines or institutions occupying majority of top rankings.
