real h-index

One can calculate the real h-index (Guns and Rousseau 2009) as the point at which the linear interpolation between the citation counts associated with publications h and h + 1 crosses a line with slope one,

$$h_r=\frac{\left(h+1\right)C_h-hC_{h+1}}{1-C_{h+1}+C_h}.$$
The real h-index has the same graphical definition as h, except it is not restricted to integer values and thus represents the actual point where the citation and threshold curves cross.
