Literature Search Tip: Finding Prolific Authors in a Field


Scopus is a very large multi-disciplinary database with helpful analysis tools.  One analysis tool lets you rank search results by author.

When you do a search, you can see which authors have published the most articles on that subject.

From the search results page, click on "Analyze Results" to create a chart like the one below. 

Use the author links to the right of the chart to quickly scan articles written by those individual authors.




Institutional Research Networking Resource: DIRECT2Experts


  • Interface for searching institutional research networking databases from over 70 institutions.
  • Type an area of expertise and connect to faculty profiles that include appointments, publications, research interests, and grants. 


Search Tip: Find Authors by Their Institution or Location


Search the biomedical literature in PubMed for authors' institutions or location in the [AD], or Author Affiliation (Address), field. 

Find people in a particular location who have published on the topic you're interested in.

Note: Prior to October 2013, only the first author's address is searchable.  For records added since October 2013, ALL author addresses from the front page of the article are searchable.
