Look at this very nice hompage, made with Collexis/BioMedExperts.
The Johns Hopkins University offers a wonderful promotion of their researchers.
Collexis (owned now by Elsevier) has announced that Scopus data will feed now their Expert profiling module.
“The Collexis Expert Profiling community module allows for the identification of an institution’s research experts based on their historical publications as well as research experts from other institutions who subscribe to the Collexis Expert Profiling application.
Additional features within the Collexis Expert Profiling application include the capability of finding similar experts, searching by key concept and provide the “Scientific Context”; that will display related experts, grants and publications based on the Fingerprint of an individual grant or publication.”
