My Hirsch h index is 70. The h index for joint publications with Doug Altman is 43.

So Doug Altman and I have the highest cited paper in five different journals: the Lancet, Statistical Methods in Medical Research, the Statistician, Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology, and the Journal of Biopharmaceutical Statistics. Doug wins, though, because he has Applied Statistics, too.
