    We examine the use of authorship information in information retrieval for closed communities by extracting expert rankings for queries. We demonstrate that these rankings can be used to re-rank baseline search results and improve performance significantly, We also perform experiments in which we base expertise ratings only on first authors or on all except the final authors, and find that these limitations do not further improve our re-ranking method.
