This page, however, is linked only from the Google Scholar Metrics help page, but not the Google Scholar main page.
To find the career-cumulative and 5-year h-indexes for individual authors (including yourself if any of your output appears in Google Scholar), click “My Citations,” and you will be prompted to create a profile. Upon doing so, your profile will feature a “Search Authors” box in the upper right-hand corner. Enter the name of a researcher, and if that researcher also has a “My Citations” profile, you will be able to view that author’s impact scores and times cited for each of his or her articles indexed in Google Scholar.
