Recently, bibliometric indicators — citation indexes (the Hirsch index and the impact factor) — have become widely popular for evaluating the contribution of scientists. In addition to their convenience (which is why they were chosen), they also have a number of disadvantages. Their active use can lead to significant problems over time.
