Abstract/Description: Objectives: This article reports the first estimated h-index values for social work faculty. Methods: Multiple raters blindly assessed two samples of faculty (1) tenure-track faculty at institutions listed in the U.S. News and World Report top 10 (n=337) and (2) tenure track editorial board members of 5 highly ranked social work journals (n=215). Results: Intraclass correlation coefficients for h-index values among the multiple raters ranged from .83 to .92, indicating good reliability. For faculty at top 10 institutions, mean estimated h-index values were 3.97 (SD=2.87) for assistant professors; 8.59 (SD=3.72) for associate professors; and 16.14 (SD=8.35) for full professors. Values for editorial board members were generally similar. Conclusions: These are the first such published data; further research is needed.
