Find Research Expertise

Search for collaborators.

Research networking tools such as ResearcherID, ResearchGate, and Google Scholar provide a forum for both demonstrating and locating expertise. 

Literature databases such as Scopus and Web of Science can be used to identify prolific authors on a subject and to search for subject experts by their location or institutional affiliation. 

The UW Libraries provide excellent resources and assistance for identifying scholars with particular expertise, including tips for networking and identifying potential collaborators.

Additional Resources

The Office of Research is developing an in-house solution to support the needs of our community.

Our Information Services team (ORIS) is exploring VIVO as an open-source solution to support faculty profiles and provide a platform for responding to the reporting needs of federal sponsors.

Some benefits of VIVO include:

  • No-cost solution with focus on the higher education community, which allows for integration with a larger amount of sources, publications and grant data 
  • Integration with National Institutes of Health’s SciENcv service to generate biosketches
  • Integration with ORCID to link researchers to their grants, patents, publications and more
