Abstract: The Hirsch index (h-index) originally suggested the h-index for application at the micro level. The h-index can be used not only for the lifetime achievements of a single researcher but can be applied to any (more extensive) publication set. For example, the h-index can be used for evaluating the scientific impact of journals as a robust alternative indicator that is an advantageous complement to journal impact factors. In current study, the h-index of Chinese Medical Journal and relative h-index from 1999-2008 was evaluated and compared with other two peer journals. We found that the validity of the h index should the new measure of journals be implemented.
