robustness, but, at the same time, removes some of its drawbacks, such as degeneracy, resistance in increasing for h values and insensitivity to the citation distribution. However, the j -index is based on a reasonable but quite empirical definition; thus
I review and discuss instances in which 19 future Nobel Laureates encountered resistance on the part of the scientific community
towards their discoveries, and instances in which 24 future Nobel Laureates encountered resistance on the part of scientific
journal editors or referees to manuscripts that dealt with discoveries that later would earn them the Nobel Prize.

In this paper we present a new one-way function with collision resistance. The security of this function is based on the difficulty
of solving a norm form equation. We prove that this function is collision resistant, so it can be used as a one-way hash function.
We show that this construction probably provides a family of one-way functions.
The article starts from the specific difficulties of applying quantitative analysis to the humanities and the general resistance to such analysis in the Federal Republic of Germany. It gives a survey of the attempts to apply bibliometric methods in English Studies, the only subject investigated so far. The highly individual nature of research in the humanities is stressed and differences in subfields are illustrated. There is little influence of departmental size or age on the publication behaviour of individuals. More studies of citation behaviour are needed for a reliable evaluation of the impact of research in the humanities.
