Calculations of electron-impact ionization cross sections (EIICS) for L-subshell of neutral atoms with atomic number Z = 14–92 and also for M-subshell targets, having atomic number Z = 35–92 for incident energies Ethreshold ≤ E ≤ 106 keV, have been reported. This review comprises the results of our two easy-to-use models, capable of reproducing very closely the experimental EIICS data. We also show systematically how these models can be implemented easily to generate accurate data as demanded by various model applications. The choice of the range of atomic number Z for both L- and M-subshell targets was made possible by the wealth of the EIICS data in literature either from experiments or from rigorous quantal calculations. The detailed findings due to our XMCN and XMUIBED models are compared with the experimental and other theoretical results. Present results describe the experimental data quite well for the L- and M-subshell for various atomic targets over a wider range of projectile energy.
