Abstract

The Hirsch index or H-index is an impact indicator used in different platforms and systems of evaluation and classification of journals. The article proposes a methodology for data collection to obtain the H index from Google Scholar and analyzes 55 Peruvian journals of Medical Sciences published in electronic format and registered in Latindex. In conclusion, although Google Scholar, as a data source, has limitations and requires manual processes, it constitutes an alternative for journals that do not appear in Google Scholar Metrics and allows editors to compare with the performance of other journals.
