How close are you to gaining one more point on your h–index score?

Writing about web page https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/scholar-h-index-calculator/

Last week I found out about a Mozilla Firefox extension which I've linked to from this post. It looks very useful in that it calculates the h-index and various other index scores for the results of any search you perform on Google Scholar, once you've installed it. If you're an author wanting to know your own h-index then the trick is to get your results set to include all of your own works. The advanced analysis feature of the extension allows you to un-tick certain results from the calculations presented in the panel at the top of your results set.

Only 100 results are processed in the analysis, so it isn't going to be a great tool for those with hundreds of publications to their name.

The tool presents not only the h-index but also the g-index, which gives extra weighting to citations from papers which are highly cited themselves, and an e-index which counts "excess citations". You can read more about the e-index on PLoS One article published in 2009 at: http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0005429

It also presents a “delta-h” and "delta-g" score which looks really useful for authors who want to know how close they are to raising their index scores.
