The c-index as a measure of a scientist’s efficiency and assertiveness


The Cuckoo-index (c-index) is a new index that attempts to measure both the effectivity and the savviness of a scientist. The index is based on the number of publications of the scientist as author on original research manuscript without contributing to them in any way. In a time of increasingly global competition for resources and funding, it is of great importance to collect scientific merits with the least investment. The c-index takes this into account.
