According to Wikipedia,

"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 publications. The index can also be applied to the productivity and impact of a group of scientists, such as a department or university or country, as well as a scholarly journal. The index was suggested byJorge E. Hirsch, a physicist at UCSD, as a tool for determining theoretical physicists' relative quality[1] and is sometimes called the Hirsch index or Hirsch number."

The h5-index is the h-index for articles published in the last 5 complete years. It is the largest number h such that h articles published in the last 5 years have at least h citations each. Thus if a journal has 25 articles that were cited 25 or more times but had 27 articles that were cited 24 or more times then the h5-index would be 25.
