Research Analytics: Find experts

How to use publishing and citation data to evidence your strengths, develop your publishing strategy and make connections

Find experts

Are you looking for a collaborator to fill a gap in your team's expertise? Do you need to find someone to peer review a paper or grant application? Whatever the reason, publishing and citation data can help you find researchers with expertise in an area of interest.

This Find experts handout guides you through two ways of finding researchers who have published in a particular area. The first starts from key terms and uses Scopus, the second starts from a known individual and uses SciVal.

You can use similar techniques to explore a field, identifying journals and institutions which contribute to your area of interest.
