Abstract

The authors tested the proposition that the ubiquity of HeinOnline in law libraries would alter law review citation patterns. Has HeinOnline’s provision of the full runs of law reviews in full text led to more citations to older materials? This article reports the results of the study they undertook to test this theory.

Keywords: Bibliometrics, Citation Analysis, Law Reviews, legal research
