With more than 1,000,000 profiles, Scholar Universe™ is the largest available collection
of searchable profiles covering active full-time faculty.
Spanning over 200 disciplines and 8 countries, each profile in Scholar Universe
is regularly reviewed for accuracy and currency to provide only the most relevant and timely
expert access for publishers, journalists, and academic libraries.
Scholar and Organization Profiles are compiled using publicly available
information, information provided by the scholars themselves, along with
licensed content. Links to scholars' homepages and affiliation websites
provide additional information on the scholars while promoting the
institution with which they are affiliated.
Scholar Universe™ is used by Academic Libraries, Scholarly & Academic Publishers,
and media organization.
