The single publication h index has been introduced by Schubert as the h index calculated from the list of citing publications of one single publication. This paper aims to look at the calculation of the single publication h index and related performance measures.
In this paper a web application is presented where the single publication h index and related performance measures (the single publication m index, h2 lower, h2 centre, and h2 upper) can be automatically calculated for any publication indexed by Google Scholar.
The use of the application is demonstrated by means of the citation performance of two publications.
To the authors' knowledge this web application is the first instrument to automatically calculate the single publication h index and related performance measures based on Google Scholar data. This is a new service especially from the perspective of the related performance measures.
