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

Author Profile Pages, Citations, Customer Suggestion, 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.
