h-factor follow-up

The Chemists (a mightily conservative group at that) stopped ranking h-factors. Although the article is an attempt to rationalize their use (it does have some positive arguments, go ahead and read it if you want).

Money quote:

… it is perfectly possible to have a huge impact in a field without amassing a large h-index. ‘Albert Einstein has an h-index of about six …”

But hey, more on chemists later.
