Indices for evaluation of scientific autput of the researcher are divided into two groups: quantative indices and qualitative indices. The first group of indices reflects the productivity of a researcher and inform about the number of published articles. The second group of indices depict the influence of the papers in the h-core. In this paper, a new hm-index reflecting productivity of a researcher and holding both properties of h and m indices is proposed. (p. 68-73)
