From any author profile page, users (or authors) can set up author alerts.
The following author alerts are available:
Look for the bell icon located in the upper right-hand side of an author profile page. Select the alerts you are interested in receiving and add your email address:
If you use the same email address to sign up for author alerts and when creating a MyHein profile, you can easily manage your alerts directly from your MyHein account.
Explore This Author is an interactive tool which uses metadata, natural language processing, and machine learning to analyze authors and identify relationships between them. Discover an author’s most-discussed subjects, the journals in which they most frequently publish, recurring co-authors, and more with this exciting new feature.
Users will be redirected to an interactive chart of facets*, each of which can be used to analyze the author’s work or their relationship to other authors or journals. Facets include:
*Each facet expansion is limited to the top 10 results
Facets can be expanded and collapsed simply by clicking on them. Select the PathFinder Subjects facet to view Bonnie Shucha’s top ten discussed subjects.
Users will notice that each subject is hyperlinked in blue. Clicking on any of the listed subjects will automatically perform a query across all subscribed databases looking for works by Bonnie Shucha related to that subject. For example, select Internet to view all available works by Bonnie Shucha on the subject.
ORCID is an independent non-profit organization that provides a persistent identifier–an ORCID ID– to distinguish a particular author from other researchers while simultaneously showcasing his or her research outputs and activities. ORCID is integrated into many systems used by publishers, funders, institutions, and other research-related services. Visit orcid.org for more information on the organization.
With HeinOnline’s ORCID integration, authors can connect their enhanced HeinOnline author profile page with their ORCID profile. After the connection has been established for a particular author, a bidirectional link will exist for that author between ORCID and HeinOnline.*
*At this time, ORCID integration will not affect HeinOnline author profile statistics and rankings. Statistics and rankings in HeinOnline will continue to count only those works which reside within HeinOnline databases.
How to Link your ORCID Account
Authors with enhanced author profiles have the option to register their ORCID iD through their Author Profile Page.
Once the account is linked in HeinOnline, the author's ORCID iD will display with an option to send HeinOnline works to display on their ORCID profile.
Authors will also see all of the works on their ORCID record displayed on their HeinOnline author profile page as well, even if the full text is not available in our databases. All publications that exist in HeinOnline will appear by default in a tab labeled HeinOnline Works.
The rest of an author’s ORCID record (including their biography, metadata, and non-HeinOnline works) will appear in an ORCID Record tab.
Data from an author’s ORCID record will only display if the following two conditions are met:
This feature is updated daily, meaning that if you change the visibility settings on any of your ORCID data, those changes will be reflected in HeinOnline the next day. For example, if you would prefer not to have information on your ORCID record displayed in HeinOnline, simply update the visibility settings on that information within ORCID to “Private.” Within 24 hours, any ORCID data set to “Private” will no longer be viewable in HeinOnline.
We have partnered with Courtroom Insight to enhance author profiles, and bring even more analytic information to the table. With this integration, mutual customers have access to a rich and comprehensive platform that includes expert witness profiles carefully organized into logical and intuitive categories of expertise.
More than 6,300 HeinOnline authors have been identified as expert witnesses from Courtroom Insight. These authors’ pages include the Courtroom Insight logo directly on their author profile page. See an example below:
Click the logo to be directed to an authenticated version of Courtroom Insight’s platform, which provides the author’s resume/CV, biography, and discipline. If users wish to receive access to additional Courtroom Insight features, a paid option is available to upgrade their access to include reviews, challenges, judicial opinions, and more. Mutual customers can simply log in with their credentials to see more content.
Similarly, if an expert witness is an author in HeinOnline, Courtroom Insight will include a list of the author’s HeinOnline articles. If the user is a customer of both platforms, clicking the link will direct them to HeinOnline’s interface. However, if the user is not a subscriber to HeinOnline, short-term subscription options will be available.
Altmetric, an addition to HeinOnline, is designed to monitor online mentions of published material with DOIs, including platforms like X or Wikipedia. It offers researchers convenient links to track these mentions.
An Altmetric badge updates daily to showcase the engagement surrounding research. In one click, users can see a record of all the online attention surrounding each piece of research.
Altmetrics will only appear if an article includes a DOI and at least 1 metric from an outside online source. These badges can be found on Author Profile Pages. The Almetric donut badge will be listed next to the ScholarCheck metrics of the author’s listed works.
