Comparison of Scientific Bibliographic Productivity in Undergraduate Courses of Speech-Language and Hearing Science at Universidade of São Paulo using the Hirsh’s Index

R.D. Herculano and A.M. Queiros Norberto

Abstract:
The Universidade de São Paulo has three undergraduate courses of speech-language and hearing science offer by Faculdade de Medicina (FM), Faculdade de Odontologia de Bauru (FOB) and Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto (FMRP). Recently was proposed by J.E. Hirsch, the new scientometric indicator, the h-index. We observed that bibliometric evaluations using papers indexed by ISI presented closely similar results: FM (2.77), FOB (2.58) and FMRP (3). As already excepted, the h-index presented also similar results: FM (0.85), FOB (0.83) and FMRP (0.71). Notice however, a greater means of papers indexed by Curriculum Lattes of undergraduate course of speech-language and hearing science offered by FM (34.92) when compared to FOB (21) and FMRP (13.71). The three undergraduate course of Universidade de São Paulo presented lower h-index because had fewer papers indexed by the ISI. It occurs, because most speech-language and hearing science papers are published in journal not indexed by ISI and therefore they are not considered in the calculation of the h-index.
