There are a variety of ways to find out an author's credentials. Often it is found within the publication as a paragraph in the beginning of a journal article. If it is a book, this information is usually found on either the book jacket or inside back cover. If more information is needed on an author, you may need to find a biographical reference source such as "Contemporary Authors". Many authors also have websites that will list their credentials.
