The Government uses Scopus and Google scholar as indexing references in providing recognition and appreciation. However, those two indexing services yield to difference H-Index from those services. researchers indexed bw Webometrics, are used as reference's data in this paper. Currently, Webometrics only uses H-Index from Google Scholar. This paper observed and compared corresponding researchers' data from Scopus to get their H-Index score. Subsequently, some researchers with huge differences in score are observed in more detail on their paper's publisher. This paper shows that the H-Index of researches in Google Scholar is approximately2.45 times of their Scopus H-Index. Most difference exists due to the existence of uncertifield publishers, which is considered in Google Scholar but not in Scopus.
