HeinOnline Tools


ScholarCheck is a tool used to analyze the most-cited journals, articles, authors, and more. The tool gives users the ability to view and access articles that are cited most by other articles and cases, and that are accessed the most by other HeinOnline users over a rolling 12-month period. It also allows users to sort search results  by using the quantifying categories above: number of times cited by either articles or cases, or by the number of times accessed by other HeinOnline users in a rolling 12-month period.


Author Profile Pages

Author Profile Pages are an excellent way to showcase and promote an author’s scholarly work. 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 be notified when an author’s articles are added, or when the author is cited by new articles added to the database. It’s easy to set up your author profile!
