Expertscape has introduced some new features at the start of 2020: more topics, better coverage, new buttons, and updated date range.

  • The site has updated to the 2020 MeSH vocabulary. As a result, we now assess expertise in 29,000+ biomedical topics. In addition to the appearance of new topics, a handful of topics have gone away or changed name.

  • Expertscape now counts publications where indexing has been performed by the journal, in addition to our long practice of counting publications indexed by the US National Library of Medicine. This has added about 10% to the number of publications for each topic. If you have noticed larger-than-normal changes in the topic-listings recently, this is the most likely reason.

  • As part of the Expertscape Connect product, some topic listings now display a “Consult me” or “Visit us” button next to institutional or personal names, respectively. (The page for wrist expertise is an example.) Clicking these buttons leads directly to a non-Expertscape web page that gives more information about the institution or individual. Please contact us if you would like to offer one of these buttons for your institution or yourself.

  • As we do at the start of every year, the date range for Expertscape’s coverage has been advanced by a year. We now include only publications from 2010 to the present. Expertscape assessments are available for past eras (e.g. the ten-year span from 1992 to 2002) through our Time Machine facility. Please contact us if you have interest in that.

We look forward to serving your needs in 2020 and beyond.
