Q. What does h-Index mean?

Answer

It is an author-level metric that indicates research output. It reflects both the number of publications and the distribution of citations to those publications.

A h-index of x for an author signifies that the author has published x papers, each of which has been cited at least x times. 

A h-index of 5 for an author signifies that the author has published 5 papers, each of which has been cited at least 5 times.
