Experts Directory: Home

Experts Directory provides a single point of organization, presentation and up-to-date reporting of scholarly activities across Oklahoma State University.

Experts Directory runs on Symplectic Elements, an application which harvests publications and other research activities from major research databases, including Scopus, MLA International Bibliography, PubMed and Crossref, and matches them to researchers at OSU. Individual researcher profiles are automatically created and populated with directory information, teaching activities, scholarship and grants.

The Experts Directory system is a closed environment limited to OSU-affiliated faculty. Faculty can share selected data in the OSU Experts public directory.



If you have a question about Experts Directory, please contact OSU Experts Directory Support or email
