Proposed by J.E. Hirsch (2005) in his paper An index to quantify an individual's scientific research output, arXiv:physics/0508025. It aims to provide a robust single-number metric of an academic's impact, combining quality with quantity.
The e-index was proposed by Chun-Ting Zhang in his paper The e-index, complementing the h-index for excess citations, PLoS ONE, Vol 5, Issue 5 (May 2009), e5429. The e-index is the (square root) of the surplus of citations in the h-set beyond h2, i.e., beyond the theoretical minimum required to obtain a h-index of 'h'. The aim of the e-index is to differentiate between scientists with similar h-indices but different citation patterns.
