How do I identify experts a field?

A search for experts often begins with reviewing the literature and identifying authors who have published a lot on the topic and/or whose articles are frequently cited.  In addition, there are databases that provide information about the local experts in a given subject.  As part of learning about an expert, you may want to search the Internet for a copy of their CV or video of lectures they have given posted on YouTube or TED.

  • Web of Science  Icon
    Article citations include number of times cited data and links to citing articles. A special trick: after running a search on a topic, select "Analyze Results" and then "Author" from the drop down menu in order to retrieve a list of the top authors who are writing on a topic.
