In the News


The Michigan Law Review published an article authored by Fred Shapiro, Yale Law School and Michelle Pearse, Harvard University, last week that used HeinOnline, along with other databases to conduct a study of the most-cited law reviews. The article, The Most-Cited Law Review Articles of All Time, used features like HeinOnline's ScholarCheck to conduct and analyze the study. Here is an excerpt from the article:

"HeinOnline’s ScholarCheck and Web of Science might be thought of as “slow and steady.” They deal with much more controlled and definitive data and tend to use more quality control." Continue Reading»

U.S. Congressional Documents Collections Enhancements


Congressional Record Appendix Volumes Now Available
 
A special thank you goes out to the Library of Congress which has enabled us to include the Congressional Record Appendix  Volumes 100 (83rd Congress, 1954 through Volume 113 (90th Congress, 1967) in HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Documents collection. The Library of Congress has allowed HeinOnline to digitize this material and over the next few months we will continue to add these appendices which were not originally part of the bound volume. Richard J. McKinney explains this material in his An Overview of the Congressional Record and Its Predecessor Publications:

"Commencing with volume 100 ( 83rd Congress, 2nd Session, 1954), the Appendix to the daily edition was dropped altogether from the bound version of the Congressional Record until volume 113 (90th Congress, 1st Sess.; 1967 only). During this thirteen year period from 1954 through 1966, only material in the daily Appendix that was considered germane to Senate and House proceedings was published..."Continue Reading»
 

Congressional Record Daily Edition Now Updated Daily

We will now be updating the Congressional Record Daily Edition every day to include the most current Congressional Record Daily Edition, just as we do with the Federal Register. We previously were updating content for the daily edition on a monthly basis.

Did you know our Treaty Index in our Treaties and Agreements Library is updated monthly? This comprehensive collection brings together more than 18,000 treaties and agreements and is indexed in five unique ways: numerically, chronologically, by country, by subject, and by geographical subject. All official treaty series are included: Treaty Series - TS 491-A - 892, Executive Agreement Series (EAS) - EAS 1-506 (1929-1946),Treaties and Other International Acts Series (TIAS) - Vols. 1-13 (1776-1949). We continue to work to create the most complete and comprehensive collection of treaties found anywhere.

This month, we have restructured this library to present more prominent browse options. From the top of the library's homepage, you can now browse by All Titles; Treaties, Books and Texts; Treaty Publications; and Important Treaties and Agreements Links. The new browse options also allow you to search these sections separately. Furthermore, we've added a keyword search to the Treaty Metadata Search allowing you to search our treaties by keyword or phrase.

John Marshall Journal of Computer and Information Law, Vols. 1-25 (1978-2008) Title Varies: Vols. 1-11 (1978-1992) as Computer/Law Journal. The Journal of Computer and Information Law is focused on providing current, relevant legal analysis regarding international information technology and privacy law.

International Journal for Education Law and Policy, Vols. 1-7 (2005-2011) Including Special Issues from 2004-2005, 2010. The peer-reviewed International Journal for Education Law and Policy (IJELP), which is the official Journal of The European Association for Education Law and Policy, provides a critical review of contemporary developments in educational law. The academic journal combines analysis, commentary and documentation on national educational legislation and European and international developments in education. It gives high priority to articles that provide a comparative perspective and offer a link between law and policy issues. Apart from scholarly articles, IJELP features special thematic reports and contains special country reports. Each issue contains country reports covering the latest developments in the field of education law, articles of a comparative nature by leading experts in the field and book reviews. The International Journal for Education Law and Policy meets the needs of both academics and practitioners dealing with education issues.

The Brief also has an extensive online component, featuring student-written pieces on current topics as well as focus pieces from noted national security law practitioners and academics. Given its location in Washington, DC and its growing relationship with the legal community, the Brief serves as an ideal platform for innovative ideas in national security law.
