## iteratively weighted h-index

The interatively weighted h-index (Todeschini and Baccini 2016) is a method for producing a single global index from the vector produced by the multidimensional h-index (H). This index is calculated as:

$$iw\left(h\right)=\sum\limits_{j=1}^{n}{\frac{h_j}{j}}.$$

where hj and n are the jth value and total length of H, respectively.
