HeinOnline Introduces New Author Ranking Metric

HOL_fullcolorLook out for Author Profile Pages on HeinOnline that provide access to an author’s list of articles and ScholarCheck rankings. Metrics used to calculate an author’s overall ScholarCheck ranking include:

  • the number of times an author’s articles have been cited by other articles
  • by articles written only in the past 10 years
  • the number of times the articles have been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period.

A new metric has been added which counts the number of times an author’s articles have been cited by articles written only within the past 12-24 months. HeinOnline  believe “this new currency factor enhances the rankings by considering what’s most relevant today in addition to the other metrics, which account for quantitative author influence.”
