For Publishers

Why Do Publishers Choose HeinOnline?

Destination Database

Authors want their material to be in a database that has become the gold standard for all law schools and researchers throughout the world.

Scholars Worldwide Go to HeinOnline for Research

More than 3,200 locations in over 175 countries are accessing HeinOnline on a daily basis, resulting in more than 40-60 thousand Active IP Addresses and 1.5-3 million hits daily.

Image-Based PDF Format

All documents in the database are in PDF format, providing the exact page images as they appear in the original print copy. This means all charts, graphs, tables, pictures, and footnotes appear where they belong.

World’s Largest Image-Based Legal Research Database

There are more than 150 million pages of content spanning more than nine centuries of legal history in HeinOnline.

Cross-Library Linking

Various libraries in HeinOnline feature cross-library linking. Therefore if the material you have in HeinOnline references other material, or other content references your material, they will be linked to each other. An example of this is Fastcase. Fastcase and HeinOnline’s partnership provides federal and state case law to HeinOnline Core subscribers via inline hyperlinks, along with the option to retrieve case law by citation. 

Accessibility Creates Readership

HeinOnline makes it easy for libraries to offer access to all their researchers through IP registration, the ability to set up off-campus proxies, UK Federation (Shibboleth or OpenAthens) authentication, and section 508 compliance.

Resources from HeinOnline are also integrated into the Encore Discovery Solution provided by Innovative and EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS).

HeinOnline App

Users will have access to your material on their iPhone/iPad! They can view the image-based PDFs, access content by citation, browse by volume, navigate a volume with the electronic table of contents, and use full advanced searching techniques.

This allows researchers access to material that shows them how to best utilize and search the content in HeinOnline.
