Author Self-Citations, ScholarCheck Rankings, and Twitter Buzz

Author Profile Pages, What's New
Shannon Furtak

Recently, HeinOnline added a metric to Author Profile Page citation data: Self-Citations. This metric counts the cumulative number of times that an author has cited his or her own work. It is not factored into the overall ScholarCheck ranking analysis, nor does it affect the overall citation count.

The concept of self-citation has been discussed for some time. This Scholarly Kitchen post, Do We Need a Self-Citation Index? inspired the development and addition of this metric to HeinOnline’s citation data.

On January 31, 2017 Judge Neil Gorsuch of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit was officially nominated by President Donald J. Trump to fill the U.S. Supreme Court vacancy.  The vacancy was created by the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia last year on February 13, 2016.

Born in Denver, Colorado, he moved to Washington, D.C. when his mother, Anne Gorsuch Burford, was appointed as the first female head of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. He went on to graduate from Columbia University with honors and earn his Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School, where he received a Truman Scholarship. As a Marshall Scholar…

What a tumultuous year 2016 turned out to be! Brexit and the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States surprised the world; many entertainment icons passed away, including actor Gene Wilder, actress Florence Henderson, singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, legendary musician and performer Prince, and psychic Miss Cleo, among many others. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia also died suddenly, leaving a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court that has yet to be filled…

At HeinOnline, we understand that librarians are constantly adjusting to technical changes as they perform and assist with a multitude of research endeavors across several databases.

New Ranking Metric and Sorting Options Added to HeinOnline's Author Profiles

Author Profile Pages, Citations, Law Journal Library, What's New
Shannon Furtak

HeinOnline's Author Profile Pages allow users to view an author's list of articles and ScholarCheck rankings. Metrics used to calculate an author's overall ScholarCheck ranking already included the number of times that author's articles have been cited by other articles, by articles written only in the past 10 years, and by cases, along with the number of times the articles have been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period.

Thanks to a great suggestion from Marie Hamm, the Assistant Director for Collection Development and Adjunct Professor at the Regent University School of Law, author rankings now include a new metric, which counts the number of times an author's articles have been cited by articles written only within the past 12-24 months…
