An individual’s h-index corresponds to the number h of his/her papers that each has at least h citations. When the citation count of an article exceeds h, however, as is the case for the hundreds or even thousands of citations that accompany the most highly cited papers, no
additional credit is given (these citations falling outside the so-called “Durfee square”). We propose a new bibliometric
index, the “tapered h-index” (hT), that positively enumerates all citations, yet scoring them on an equitable basis with h.
The career progression of hT and h are compared for six eminent scientists in contrasting fields. Calculated hT for year 2006 ranged between 44.32 and 72.03, with a corresponding range in h of 26 to 44. We argue that the hT-index is superior to h, both theoretically (it scores all citations), and because it shows smooth increases from year to year as compared with the
irregular jumps seen in h. Conversely, the original h-index has the benefit of being conceptually easy to visualise. Qualitatively, the two indices show remarkable similarity
(they are closely correlated), such that either can be applied with confidence.
Bio-pharmaceutical R&D is increasingly an international affair. Research articles published in the peer-reviewed international
scientific and technical journals represent quantifiable research outputs of bio-pharmaceutical firms. Large-scale systemic
measurements of worldwide trends and sectoral patterns within bio-pharmaceutical science can be gauged from these articles,
where coauthored research papers are assumed to reflect research cooperation and associated knowledge flows and exchanges.
We focus our attention on the largest science-based multinational enterprises (MNEs), those that produce relatively large
quantities of research articles. The study deals with the worldwide output of research articles that are co-produced by corporate
researchers during the years 1996–2001.
We employ these publications to examine structural factors characterizing research cooperation networks within industry at
the level of major geographical regions (North America, Europe, Pacific-Asia), with a breakdown by within-MNE and between-MNE
network linkages. The descriptive statistics on publication output and results of network analyses of co-publication linkages
not only indicate regional differences, with a central role for US companies in biopharmaceutical research, but also a variety
of firm-specific research cooperation networks which enabled us to develop a tentative typology of MNEs in terms of their
intra- and interorganizational patterns of research cooperation linkages.
