The H index (or Hirsch index) is used to assess the impact of an individual's publications. It relies on citations to an author's articles, not a whole  journal, and so is a better measure of individual impact.  It is based on the number of  citations per paper and is not skewed by a single well-cited, influential paper.

How do I find my H index -  Google Scholar
