European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH) - Journal Rankings

 The h-index is an index that attempts to measure both the productivity and impact of the published work of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other people's publications. [From wikipedia]

 g-index is an index for quantifying scientific productivity based on publication record. It was suggested in 2006 by Leo EggheThe index is calculated based on the distribution of citations received by a given researcher's publications. 
The g-index is very similar to the h-index, and attempts to address its shortcomings. Like the h-index, the g-index is a natural number and thus lacks in discriminatory power. Therefore, Richard Tol proposed a rational generalization. [From Wikipedia]

 One word of explanation: journal type is my own classification into three groups–journals of primarily disciplinary interest (type 1), journals of extra-disciplinary interest (type 2), and history journals (type 3). Type 2 journals tend to elicit higher citation rates than type 1 journals, and both of these tend to elicit higher citation rates than type 3 journals.
