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.

  • Google Scholar  
    Article citations include number of times cited and link to citing articles.
  • Faculty1000Prime  Icon
    A directory of top articles in biology and medicine, as recommended by over 5,000 expert scientists and clinical researchers, assisted by 5,000 associates.
  • Thomson Reuters Highly Cited Research
    Select Browse and then search by category, author or institution to identify highly cited researchers. Since links to publications are not provided, you may want to do an author search in Web of Science to find related articles.
  • SciVal  Icon
