Paper Abstract

The h-Index is frequently used to evaluate researchers. However, the index is not suitable for young researchers because they typically have only a few prior achievements. In this paper, we evaluate the potential of JSPS research fellows using the h-index and the betweenness centrality of co-author networks. The results show that the new measure appropriately evaluates the potential of young researchers at their early stage, as compared with the h-index.
