I have never played much attention to how scientists are scored... until now.
It is so not fair to use the h-index on someone who has just finished their PhD!! Ok, so that someone is me. Still, I have had 2 papers that only came out, of course they aren't going to be cited yet...if at all.
Also, does anyone else think it's odd that grants for a first post doc are given to people who have already been working on the project as a post doc for over a year? If it's for people already in the position, why not advertise it as such? If a student has no chance of getting it, why do they advertise it for students?

Also IF ratings are not fair....could add a long rant to this topic as well.

I know impact factors, but how do you calculate this H factor? With google scholar?

Do people actually include it on their CV? I usually use Google Scholar to see how my papers are cited but this wikipedia suggest that they are overestimating. Hmm.
