Starting from one-nucleon separation energies near doubly-closed shells as well as of the experimental centroid for particle-hole excitations, a new prescription for obtaining residual particle-hole matrix elements is presented. It is shown that the major difference with the standard Blomqvist prescription is a shift in the energy that can be estimated in a graphical way.
