About this list: This list was created by Kitty Bennett for the newsroom of the St. Petersburg Times, so there's an emphasis on sources we like, including many in Florida. We have a preference for organizations that make it possible to search for experts by area of specialty, that provide contact information (phone and e-mail) and that show credentials. The Universities / Think Tanks, General and Authors sections are useful for one-stop shopping for experts on a wide variety of topics. Below those are other experts, arranged by topic.

If you know of any good experts directories or have comments on these, please email: Angie Drobnic Holan.
