The Academic Family Tree

For researchers of all stripes, the Academic Family Tree is "a nonprofit, user-content-driven web database that aims to accurately document and publicly share the academic genealogy of current and historical researchers across all fields of academia." The project emerged from a project that sought to map out neuroscience research around the globe. Since launched in 2005, scholars in other disciplines began to develop their own "academic genealogies." Today, the Academic Family Tree contains nearly 700,000 researchers from dozens of disciplines, including education, linguistics, sociology, biology, law, history, and much more. Visitors may search the Academic Family Tree by research institution and individual. From here, visitors can view how individual researchers are connected to one another (e.g. advisors and graduate students). In addition, users can search for connections between researchers.
