HeinOnline Law Journal Library Indexed by Google Scholar

We provide the metadata for and allow Google Scholar to crawl the content from HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library.

The HeinOnline Law Journal Library is comprised of articles, notes, comments, reviews, legislation, cases, decisions, contents, editorials, and other miscellaneous documents or sections.

Google Scholar does not include the entire comprehensive Law Journal Library. They have opted to include only some of the content, and some of the documents that they chose to integrate with the Google Scholar index were chosen solely by the programming and/or processes put in place by Google Scholar. This means that there are potentially some well-known, highly cited, scholarly articles in HeinOnline that are not searchable or available in Google Scholar.

Therefore, HeinOnline subscribers should always start their research first with HeinOnline. Users may access additional content through inline hyperlinks and links to additional articles provided by ScholarCheck, as well as save their research to their individual MyHein account.

For those without access to HeinOnline, Google Scholar displays the first page of indexed articles. If non-subscribers wish to see the full text of the article, they would need to purchase a short-term subscription.

If you are subscribed to HeinOnline, you may have a different experience. HeinOnline annual subscribers who are IP authenticated are automatically logged in to HeinOnline, at which point you can read the full text of the article.
