Price-to-book is a very well-studied value measure. What research is there on non-P/B value measures?

I came across a handful used by AQR (Sales/EV, Cash flow/EV, E/P, Forecasted Earnings/Price) but the bibliography doesn't cite any other papers that study these measures.

Below their table 1, just for completeness:
