Figure 4: Excess citations attributable to an author (above and beyond those represented by the h-index) can be estimated using the e-index, derived from the area “above” the “h-index area” on the graph shown. This measure of scholarly productivity is useful in estimating scientific contributions of those authors who have not yet achieved sufficient per-publication citations to meaningfully contribute to their h-index. Prolific authors in the early career stages tend to have higher e-index values
