    Faculty publications

    Dissemination of the results of research is a primary obligation of the research scientist or clinician, with peer-reviewed journals the major vehicle. Accordingly, the Office of Research would like to recognize the excellent research being done in the School of Dentistry by focusing on faculty members' activity in publishing their findings.

    Publications impact - H-Index

    The Hirsch-Index is one indicator of an investigator's research productivity. It attempts to evaluate not only the number of peer-reviewed articles published, but the impact of the findings by  looking at the frequency with which an article is cited by other researchers. The H-indices reported here capture only publications after 1995, so may not fully reflect the impact of our faculty with longer research careers.
