Abstract: The h-index is one of the bibliometric indicators used to estimate the success of a researcher. This indicator combines production and impact, and eliminates biases caused by the tails of the citations distribution. However, this indicator has limitations in discriminating between researchers with different publication habits, penalising in h-index based evaluations those who follow a more selective publication strategy and publish a relatively low number of documents that are frequently cited. This paper presents an empirical application of environment indicators, an addition to the h-index that considers the intermediate zone of the citations distribution.
