In this paper, we propose weighted h-index h w and h-index strength s h to measure spreading capability and identify the most influential spreaders. Experimental results on twelve real networks reveal that s h was more accurate and more monotonic than h w and four previous measures in ranking the spreading influence of a node evaluated by the single seed SIR spreading model. We point out that the questions of how to improve monotonicity and how to determine a proper neighborhood range are two interesting future directions. View Full-Text
