Abstract: The Journal Impact Factors (JIF) has become nowadays one of the most frequently used scientometric indictor, the Hirschs index (h-index) has also got positive reception in the scientometric literature. In this study, the journals of reproduction biology were compared with JIF and h-indices computed from the ISI Web of Science. This h-index (2001-2008) exhibited a high correlation with the 5 years JIF (2004-2008) (r = 0.64, p = 0.001), the relative h-index showed a weak correlation with the JIF (r = 0.42, p = 0.049). A ranking of 25 reproduction journals is presented on the basis of this JIF or h-index.
