Authors of law journal articles may be interested in a new feature at HeinOnline: Author Profile Pages. This feature makes it easy for authors of law review articles to showcase their work.
The Author Profile Pages displays a page which will showcase a list of works affiliated with a given author, as well as citation and access statistics, similar to those at SSRN.
Ranking is based on:
- the number of times the articles have been cited by other articles and cases
- the number of times the articles have been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period.
The author will have the ability to enhance this page by adding a photo, biographical information and optional links to his/her university/affiliation. Forthcoming features will include the ability to add articles not published in HeinOnline and the ability to set up alerts to receive notification when your article has been cited.
How to Access the profile page for a particular author?
Simply search for that author using the quick search bar on the Law Journal Library homepage:
From the search results, click the author’s name, which will link to the profile page and a list of articles written by the author. The basic version of the profile page will be shown.

If you are an author and would like to enhance your basic profile page, fill out the form ‘Author Profile Setup Request’. Start by searching for your name as author in Hein’s Law Journal Library, click on it in the results, then click the submit author profile link.

ScholarRank’s Top 250 Authors
HeinOnline has also compiled a list of ScholarRank’s Top 250 Authors based on an analysis of all articles in HeinOnline. Each author was ranked in the categories of number of times cited by articles, number of times cited by cases, and number of times accessed by HeinOnline users during the past 12 months. The rankings in each category were then averaged to produce the list of authors that scored the highest when averaging all categories.
