NEW: Citation Data Extraction is Now Available for Author Profile Pages


HeinOnline recently added a new feature perfect for librarians and scholars tracking citation metrics for an institution’s faculty: users now have the ability to download a CSV of ScholarCheck metrics for an entire institution! This helpful tool was developed thanks to a suggestion from Brian Huffman from William S. Richardson School of Law Library.

Author Profile Pages

HeinOnline’s Author Profile Pages are an excellent way to showcase and promote an author’s scholarly work. This page automatically displays a list of an author’s articles and ScholarCheck statistics, and can be enhanced to include a photo, biographical information, and links to the author’s website and social media accounts.

ScholarCheck statistics include:

  • The number of times an article has been cited by other articles and cases
  • The number of times an article has been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period
  • The number of times an article has been cited by articles written in the past 10 years
  • The number of times an author’s articles have been cited by articles written within the past 12-24 months

Below is an example of an author profile page.

How to Obtain a Spreadsheet of Institutional Citation Metrics

To utilize this new feature, enter the Law Journal Library and Browse by Author Profiles.

When users click on the institution’s name, all articling authors who have enhanced their Author Profile will be provided below, as well as a link to download a CSV of ScholarCheck metrics for all of the enhanced profiles from the institution.

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.

We encourage all authors to enhance their profile pages, at which time they too will appear in their institutions’s CSV metrics. It is as simple as filling out this form.

If you have questions about this enhancement, or about searching and navigating in HeinOnline, please contact our dedicated support team at (800) 277-6995, email us, or chat with us!
