fractional p-index

The fractional p-index (Prathap 2011) is a variant of the p-index which attempts to account for multiple-authored publications by adjusting both citation and publication counts by author counts. It is calculated as:

$$C^{\prime}=\sum\limits_{i=1}^{P}{\frac{C_i}{A_i}}$$$$P^{\prime}=\sum\limits_{i=1}^{P}{\frac{1}{A_i}}$$$$p_f=\sqrt[3]{\frac{\left.C^{\prime}\right.^2}{P^{\prime}}}$$
