Who are the dozens of experts who work with ProfVal?
For ProfVal to consider someone an expert, she or he must have demonstrated a high degree of expertise based on a combination of academic credentials, publications, work history, and/or other significant accomplishments that have meaning within the discipline. Most of the experts we work with are professors at accredited US colleges or universities who have earned terminal degrees within their disciplines, teach, have won awards, and produce valuable intellectual contributions (i.e. peer-reviewed research, presentations, or artistic achievements). Some are department chairs, assistant or associate deans, or deans. Other experts are leaders in their field based on significant achievements within their discipline (i.e. winning an academy award, winning an Olympic medal, obtaining a terminal degree, or managing major projects within their discipline).
Prior to completing an evaluation, we will provide you with the background information of the expert(s) who we believe fit well with your needs so that you can confirm that her or his background fits with your needs.
If you believe you are qualified to work with us, please apply here. Please note that we have strict criteria for inclusion within our network and there are many reasons that someone may not qualify.
A key indicator of an academic's influence is the number of citations from their work. Combined across all areas, the faculty we work with have more citations of their work than many accredited US colleges.
