You can edit your own Hein Author Profile or allow the Law Library to edit it on your behalf. If you'd like the Law Library to make the edits, please send the updates needed to Matt Timko.
If you want to edit your own Author Profile you first need a MyHein account that uses the email address found in your Author Profile. If you don't already have a MyHein account, here's how to create one:
To edit your Author Profile:
On August 26, HeinOnline announced that the second phase of their integration with ORCiD is now complete. In addition to being able to see works from HeinOnline on your ORCiD author page, works on your ORCiD author page will appear on your HeinOnline Author Profile.
This development is especially important if you have published books, do interdisciplinary work and/or publish in journals outside of the traditional law reviews that make up such a large part of HeinOnline's database: "...by creating and adding publications to their ORCID profiles, law scholars can now elect to have their books, interdisciplinary works, and many other works appear in HeinOnline which US News is using as the data source for their scholarly impact ranking." -- https://wisblawg.law.wisc.edu/2020/08/28/law-scholars-can-now-add-books-interdisciplinary-works-to-hein-through-orcid-integration-what-this-could-mean-for-the-us-news-scholarly-impact-ranking/
To make the magic happen, you need to have set up an ORCiD account (procedures described on the ORCiD page of this guide) and connected it to your HeinOnline Author Profile (procedures described on the HeinOnline Author Profiles page of this guide).
Reminder: Don't proceed with this step until the articles in your HeinOnline Author Profile are complete and correct.
These instructions assume you’ve already set up an ORCiD ID and connected it to HeinOnline. If you haven’t done that yet, refer to the box above labeled Adding your ORCiD ID to your Author Profile.
FYI: eventually works represented in your ORCID record that are not in HeinOnline will be pulled into your HeinOnline Author Profile, but this is not yet functional.
Setting up email alerts will notify you when Hein adds works to your Author Profile. This can alert you to situations where an article has been attributed to you erroneously.
