Most-Cited Health Law Scholar
Professor Pope is ranked among the Top 20 most cited health law scholars in the United States.
The systematic study was published in the Harvard Law School Petrie Flom Center's Bill of Health in 2018.
Professor Pope's h-index is 29. That places him among the Top 10% of legal scholars.
The H-index is a widely-used and useful measure of quality and quantity. It combines productivity (i.e., number of papers produced) and impact (number of citations) into a single number. The H-index gives an estimate of the importance, significance, and broad impact of a scholar’s cumulative research contributions.
Professor Pope's I-10 index is 62.
The I-10 index is the number of articles with at least 10 citations.
Professor Pope's G index is 50.
The G-Index is the largest number such that the top G articles received (together) at least G^2 citations. This index accounts for the performance of author's top articles and helps to make more apparent the difference between authors' respective impacts.
Professor Pope's M index is 1.93.
The M index is the H index (29) divided by the number of years the scholar has been active (15).
The H Index does not measure blog posts and articles in publications like the ASCO Post. Moreover, since it focuses on citations, it does not measure impact on practicing clinicians and hospital administrators.
Many of my publications, particularly professional organizatio position statements, are directed at improving practice. This audience may revise institutional policies and procedures, but will likely not cite my work in a publication. On the other hand, much of this research is featured in media like the New York Times.
