Benjamin Boron

The Hein Company has made it a mission to bridge the gap in legal history by providing comprehensive coverage from inception of as much material as possible. With the August content release, another title was completed back to inception: Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications. Coverage of this title includes 1895-2004.

Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications was established by the Printing Act of January 12, 1895. This publication was issued monthly by the Superintendent of Documents for the Government Printing Office, and cataloged all publications of the United States government, including those issued by Congress and all executive departments. (This publication excludes confidential or restricted documents.)

Monthly Catalog makes finding government documents a much easier task…

This database was not included in the original comparison, so the same process was used to compare its content with that of HeinOnline.

Washington and Lee University's Law Journal Ranking Project was used to determine the list of the top 100 law journals, according to the Ranking Project's combined score. Journal rankings on this list are determined by this ranking methodology
