Production Indicators of Mathematics Teachers in Public Universities of the Valencian Community on Web of Science

Universal Journal of Educational Research, v4 n12 p2852-2856 2016
The current evaluation and comparison system of scientific production by impact factor has been criticised from different perspectives in recent years, and has ensured that publishing in high-impact journals does not necessarily imply that works are quality works. Many of these jobs are mostly not cited or, in the best of cases, only a very small number are, especially during the first years since their publication [4, 21]. In this context, the h-Index appeared in 2005 [19], and is currently one of the most bibliometric indicators used to estimate the success of research work and to predict the impact of future production. Following that proposed in [11], we used the h-index as a measure of scientific quality and productivity of mathematics teachers in Public Universities of the Valencian Community on the Web of Science. The results showed that the h-Index widely correlates citations and number of items.
