The easiest way to locate articles written by a faculty member is to search by their name. It is difficult to locate research articles by searching for their affiliated academic institution, especially since many UW faculty collaborate on articles with authors located at other universities.
In the ProQuest and EBSCO databases it is easy to set the search filter for "Author." The preferred format for the name is last name, first name. However, be aware that many academic journals combine the first and middle names of authors into two initials (e.g., Brown, AB).
In Web of Science, the preferred format is last name followed by the initial of the first name (e.g., Brown A).
For other databases, look at the options for filters in the search engine. If problems are encountered, contact the UW Libraries Help Desk.
