U.S. News & World Report is proposing a new scholarly impact ranking of law schools, utilizing faculty publication and citation metrics derived from HeinOnline and its ScholarCheck and Author Profiles Pages. Law librarians have taken an active role in ensuring their institutional scholars and scholarship are accurately represented in Hein. This session will explore the parameters of Hein’s ScholarCheck service, its relationship with U.S. News & World Report, and how law librarian contributions can improve the quality of the metrics.
