A full list of articles published by a living writer would almost certainly have to be provided by the author herself. Faculty members at universities and other authors who frequently publish in the scientific and scholarly literature often have either contact information or their own bibliographies (or both) on their web pages.
Harvard Catalyst's People & Collaboration pages have profiles of Harvard affiliates working in the biosciences. Many of their profiles contain bibliographies, though for more prolific authors they're selected and not complete bibliographies. These profiles also include contact information.
In other cases, you'd be best served using the various periodical indexes which specialize in the author's field. For instance, if you're looking at a particular Harvard researcher who works primarily in psychology and art, you might look at the relevant indexes, such as PsychInfo and Art Full Text. While the resulting list would not be an authoritative bibliography, it would come close.
In any case, feel free to check with us for appropriate indexes and full text databases.
Finally, most professional papers and dissertations produced at Harvard these days (along with older work if the author arranges to deposit it) goes into DASH, Harvard's open access repository. In most cases DASH will not contain full bodies of any one author's work.
