Research collaboration has proved valuable in many ways, and there are a variety of ways to identify a potential collaborator. 

1. Research analysis tools such as SciVal can identify and analyze impact of existing collaborations and potential collaboration opportunities based on publication output and citation impact. 

2. Research networking tools such as Google Scholar, ResearchGate, or Mendeley can provide a forum for both demonstrating and locating expertise. 

3. Citation and Literature Databases such as Scopus and Web of Science can be used to identify prolific authors on a subject and to search for subject experts by their location or institutional affiliation.
