Increasing Your Scholarly Visibility and Impact: Hein Author Profile

What Is a Hein Author Profile?

Hein Author Profiles provide links to scholar publications in Heinonline, information about the scholar, citation statistics and links to other online collections of the scholar's materials, like SSRN and Google Scholar as well as social media sources.  An author profile is generated once an author is included in Hein's database.  It can then be "enhanced" with more information and a scholar photo.

The great thing about Hein Author Profiles is that the Law Library can maintain and edit them for you.  If you have any edits you wish to make, please send them to John Cannan.
