Author Self-Citations, ScholarCheck Rankings, and Twitter Buzz

HeinOnline has 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.
