least squares h-rate

Hirsch's original estimate of the h-rate was based on a single data point, the most recently measured value of h and the time since first publication. Burrell (2007) suggested that a more accurate measure could be estimated through least-squares regression of a series of h-indices measured at different time points of an author's career, while forcing the intercept through zero at the start of their career (prior to first publication).
