This page automatically displays a list of an author’s articles and ScholarCheck statistics and can be enhanced to include a photo, biographical information, and links to the author’s website and social media accounts. Use email alerts to stay up to date with authors’ works. Let’s take a closer look at this HeinOnline feature and what’s new!

They include location, person, and organization, which can assist with search and discovery. We are happy to announce that entities are now available in the Federal Register Library!

Author Self-Citations, ScholarCheck Rankings, and Twitter Buzz

Author Profile Pages, What's New
Shannon Sabo

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.
