How do I identify experts a field?
A search for experts often begins with reviewing the literature and identifying authors who have published a lot on the topic and/or whose articles are frequently cited. In addition, there are databases that provide information about the local experts in a given subject. As part of learning about an expert, you may want to search the Internet for a copy of their CV or video of lectures they have given posted on YouTube or TED.
