Look 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.”
A comprehensive HeinOnline User’s Guide has been released following an update of its interface in August. This guide covers the basics of how to navigate through the interface, search from the Welcome Page and from inside collections, and use the various tools available.
Also released recently is a Getting Started in HeinOnline quick reference guide, which gives a brief overview of how to access the database, basic searching and navigation.
