hindex: Simulating the Development of h-Index Values

H-index and h-alpha are a bibliometric indicators. This package provides functions to simulate how these indicators may develop over time for a given set of researchers and to visualize the simulation data. The implementation is based on the 'STATA' ado h-index and is described in more detail in Bornmann et al. (2019) <doi:10.48550/arXiv.1905.11052>.
