Draft/RFC statistics

Please Note: The author information in the datatracker about RFCs with numbers lower than about 1300 and drafts from before 2001 is unreliable and in many cases absent. For this reason, statistics on these pages does not show correct author stats for corpus selections that involve such documents.

Hirsch index or h-index is a measure of the productivity and impact of the publications of an author. An author with an h-index of 5 has had 5 publications each cited at least 5 times - to increase the index to 6, the 5 publications plus 1 more would have to have been cited at least 6 times, each. Thus a high h-index requires many highly-cited publications.

Note that the h-index calculations do not exclude self-references.
