Need to locate a law journal article, but don’t have the journal’s citation abbreviation handy?
HeinOnline’s Enhanced Citation Navigator has you covered. To access the Enhanced Citation Navigator, simply go to the Law Library’s Electronic Resources page, then click on HeinOnline in the Quick Links box on the right side of the page.
Login to HeinOnline, then click on “Law Journal Library.” The Navigator should appear on the left side of the screen.
Enter the volume number in which the article you need appears in the Volume box. Then, simply enter the first letter of the name of the journal in which the article is published in the Abbreviation box. For example, if you need an article from the Harvard Law Review, begin typing “Harvard” in the Abbreviation box. A series of journals will appear in a dropdown menu, and the number of journals will shrink as you type more of the abbreviation. This is the Auto Fill Abbreviation Box, and it is the main difference between the Classic Citation Navigator and the Enhanced Navigator. Choose “Harv. L. Rev.” Finally, enter the article’s page number in the Page box. Click Get Citation, and you should see a PDF image of the specific page you’ve requested. You can also copy and paste or type the full citation into the box beneath the “Type or Copy and Paste Citation Here:” heading.
Of course, you can always use the Classic Citation Navigator by clicking on the link at the bottom of the Enhanced Navigator. The Classic Navigator works in roughly the same way as the Enhanced Navigator without the Auto Fill Abbreviation Box.
So, if you ever find yourself needing to locate a law review article, but can’t remember the journal’s abbreviation, there’s no need to worry. Simply visit HeinOnline, begin typing the name of the journal, and Enhanced Citation Navigator will provide the abbreviation.
