How to Contact Authors

You will want to contact the author(s) of tools found in the scholarly literature to request copies and/or permissions to use their tools. You can find contact information in several ways:

  • See if there is contact information listed on the article.
  • Look at the information for the article on the publisher's website. Sometimes, there is a link to the author's contact information. 
  • If there is no contact information listed, look at their educational/organizational affiliation. You may be able to go to the university or organization website and find contact information. 
  • Try to find the author(s) on social media platforms such as LinkedIn.
  • Try all authors, not just the primary author of the article.
