  • 1. University of Wisconsin Law School
  • 2. LYRASIS


This presentation was part of a panel session titled "Getting Sociolegal Scholarship Cited and Recognized: New Possibilities and Perils Organized by the LSA Task Force on Sociolegal Metrics" for the Law and Society Association 2020 virtual conference on May 30, 2020. 

This panel examines the challenge posed by US News & World Report's new plan to institute rankings of law professors' scholarship and explores opportunities for all sociolegal scholars to make their work more visible. The panelists introduce the controversies involved in the proposed new ranking, including scientific concerns about the quality of the proposed data. They then provide information about a new potential to expand the available data on publications and citations using a partnership between HeinOnline and ORCID.
