ScholarCheck

HeinOnline’s ScholarCheck is a series of tools and features integrated throughout HeinOnline to help researchers quickly locate related material throughout the interface. It allows users to view articles and cases which have a heavy influence on the subject being researched.

  • Analyzes the most-cited journals, articles, and authors
  • Enables users to view and access articles and cases cited by other articles and cases, and to see how many times an article has been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period
  • Provides inline hyperlinking so users can quickly access related material across HeinOnline and Fastcase content
  • Allows users to sort search results by most-cited and most-accessed content
  • Calculates metrics for ranking scholarly authors and displays these metrics in Author Profile Pages

From both search results and from within HeinOnline and Fastcase documents, easily link to lists of articles and cases that cite the current article.

Users may also view how many times the article has been accessed by other HeinOnline users within a rolling 12-month period.
