SciVal Experts is a directory of research expertise pre-populated with the most useful and yet most-difficult information to compile -- deep publication histories – making it easier for you to find collaborators today. 

Unlike research networking tools that merely return lists of abstracts, SciVal Experts applies the Elsevier Fingerprint Engine™ to produce a visual analysis of relevant concepts that instantly exposes a researcher’s distinctive expertise, based on publication history.

Rooted in Scopus® – the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources – SciVal Experts is also flexible, able to incorporate institutional data and individual researcher updates for a more comprehensive picture of institutional expertise.

SciVal Experts is used by a growing community of more than 20 institutions, most of which are in the US. Nearly all institutions choose to make their SciVal Experts directory publically available to demonstrate their researchers’ accomplishments so even if your organization doesn’t have SciVal Experts, you can start searching for collaborators today.


Access this list of publically available SciVal Experts applications or for a shortcut, visit SciVal Experts at the University of Michigan.

Browse profiles or search by concept, last name or full text to identify collaborators for grant teams, learn about new journals in your field and discover articles to read.

View researchers’ Fingerprints, publication histories and co-author networks to explore their unique expertise as well as their connections to other faculty and institutions.
