Author Profile Pages

HeinOnline makes it easy for authors of law review articles to showcase their work. Check out our new author profile pages in the Law Journal Library!

How to Access

To access the profile page for a particular author, simply search for that author using the Advanced Search option on the Law Journal Library homepage:

From the search results, click the author’s name, which will link to the profile page and a list of articles written by the author.

How to Enhance Your Author Profile Page

If you are an author and would like to enhance your basic profile page, fill out this form. The basic page will list your name and articles, the number of times your articles have been cited by other articles and cases, and the number of times your articles have been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period. Add a photo, biographical information, your university/affiliation, and links to your web page and social media accounts. Once your page has been enhanced, you can easily share it with colleagues using these options:

Thanks to a fantastic suggestion from Bonnie Shucha from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, we have also made it possible to follow your favorite law review article authors via the Author Profile Pages in HeinOnline!

Users are also able to receive email alerts when works by authors of their choice are accessed by other HeinOnline researchers. This feature was developed thanks to a suggestion by Shawn Nevers, Deputy Librarian at Brigham Young University.

To access the author’s profile page, simply click on the author’s name from search results:

Then, click Set up e-mail alerts, and enter your e-mail address:

You will receive a notification via e-mail that these alerts have been set up:

You will then be notified via e-mail depending on the alert(s) you signed up for.

We have also compiled a list of ScholarRank’s Top 250 Authors based on an analysis of all articles in HeinOnline. Each author was ranked in the categories of the number of times cited by articles, the number of times cited by cases, and the number of times accessed by HeinOnline users during the past 12 months. The rankings in each category were then averaged to produce the list of authors that scored the highest when averaging all categories.

Another advantage of Author Profile Pages is the ability to download a CSV of ScholarCheck metrics for an entire institution’s enhanced author profiles. This feature was released in November 2017. To utilize this feature, enter the Law Journal Library and Browse by Author Profiles.

Thanks to a suggestion from Lisa Davis at Florida International University, users can link directly to an institution’s list of enhanced author profiles. Click on the institution’s name for the list of authors who have enhanced their author profile, as well as a link to download a CSV of ScholarCheck metrics for all of the enhanced profiles from the institution. This feature enables users to easily share the link with colleagues.

For example, click on Columbia University Law School.

A CSV is automatically downloaded when the user clicks on the link. All of the authors’ information is pulled into the CSV, where a user can sort/filter the information by any individual metric or by overall ScholarCheck rank. See an example of a CSV file below.
