Abstract

In December 2016 the Hirsch index was proposed as a promotion index
in the academic field. This uses as a way to assess a formula that includes the
number of the articles published in the ISI Thomson Reuters indexed journals, and
where an essential criterion is the number of quotations made by other authors
reported to the works of the assessed author. The current study aims at analyzing,
in a less exhaustive manner, the degree at which the introduction of the Hirsch
index score as an academic promoting criterion has changed the attitude of the
researchers towards the bibliographic references they cite in the scientific papers
they publish in the ISI indexed journals.
