Google Scholar Metrics

Google Scholar metrics is interesting as it ranks the journals by the h-index. One drawback of this method is that it means that it does not take into account journals with large numbers of low or uncited papers. For example a journal with 200 cited papers and no uncited papers could rank the same as a journal with 200 cited papers and 800 uncited papers.

Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.
