Who uses Expert Lookup
Expert Lookup helps funding organizations and research organizations find qualified scientific experts.
Funding organizations need to make many investment decisions in scientific research, one of which is finding the correct grant application reviewers. Expert Lookup can help locate reviewers without potential conflicts of interest and then build up and manage personalized review committees. It can also help you identify experts whose research match your funding interests so you can put out more targeted calls for funding requests.
Research organizations, including academic institutions, face increasing competition for research funding. Recent research finds that grant applications that underwent an internal review were twice as likely to receive funding as those applications not reviewed. However, finding unbiased reviewers to review grant applications or referee papers can be a struggle. By mining the text of more than 70 million abstracts, Expert Lookup can help quickly and easily find experts in even niche fields of research, flagged for potential conflict of interest based on co-authorships or organizational affiliations.
Our team of consultants move beyond data to provide powerful insights when measuring research performance. The resulting insights answer pressing research management questions and inform decisions related to funding initiatives, their return on investment and outputs to help assess and design funding programs.
