How to Locate an Author Profile Page
Author profile pages can be located from the linked author name in HeinOnline search results.
Click the name displayed to be taken to the author profile page.
You have the option to email an author’s profile page to a recipient of your choice from this page. A subscription to HeinOnline is not required to view an author’s profile page. However, a subscription will be required to view the articles that link from the profile page.

1. Fill out the form below.
2. Complete the linked form; you will be asked to provide the following:

New Author Profile Email Alert Added!
We have enhanced our Author Profile Pages yet again with the help of machine learning and natural language processing tools!
Users can now receive email alerts when articles are added to HeinOnline that are similar to those written by a specific author. Authors who write on particular subjects will love this feature! We would like to thank Mary Whisner, from the University of Washington School of Law, for this suggestion!
