### EXAMPLE 1: ###
data(scientometrics, package = "bibliometrixData")
authors <- c("SMALL H", "CHEN DZ")
Hindex(scientometrics, field = "author", elements = authors, sep = ";")$H
Hindex(scientometrics, field = "source", elements = "SCIENTOMETRICS", sep = ";")$H
### EXAMPLE 2: Garfield h-index###
data(garfield, package = "bibliometrixData")
indices=Hindex(garfield, field = "author", elements = "GARFIELD E", years=Inf, sep = ";")
# h-index, g-index and m-index of Eugene Garfield
indices$H
# Papers and total citations
