The authorship is an important criteria to evaluate content quality. Frequently, Web users have to spend a lot of time in Web searchers to find information about author’s expertise. This paper presents an approach to help Web users in this task. The approach consists of: a set of techniques to extract information about authors from Web and an architecture of an extraction tool. An application scenario is presented, in which the user can read details about a specific author of a Web page when reading the document.
