Google Law Review Rankings

Google Scholar LogoFrom my friend and colleague Rob Anderson (Pepperdine), Google Ranks Law Reviews:

Google has announced an enhancement to its Scholar Metrics that allows users to view citation rankings of journals in various categories. Among the rankings is Google's ranking of law reviews, as well as a number of specialty law reviews such as technology law and international law. The rankings are based on Jorge Hirsch's "h-index," which is an alternative to impact factor as a measure of a journal's importance.
