Highlights of the Past Month

Our Criminal Justice Database Got a Makeover

For the past few months, the HeinOnline production team worked tirelessly to incorporate a massive update into one of our most popular databases, Criminal Justice in America. The unprecedented breadth of criminal justice and criminology content included in this addition (more than 2 million pages) led us to completely reorganize the database, subject-code the material, and give the collection a new and improved name more reflective of its new and improved content. Learn more about Criminal Justice & Criminology, your must-have resource for researching these two disciplines, in this recent blog post.


Individuals and Institutions Can Now Edit Author Profiles

HeinOnline’s Author Profile Pages have long been an essential feature for showcasing the scholarly work of HeinOnline authors.
