fractional citation g-index

The fractional citation g-index (Egghe 2008) is a variant of the g-index normalized by the number of authors and is the g equivalent of the normalized hi-index. It is calculated as:

$$g_f=\underset{i}{\max}\left(i^2 \leq \sum\limits_{j=1}^{i}{\frac{C_j}{A_j}}\right).$$

Example

Publications are ordered by adjusted number of citations, from highest to lowest.
