Understanding societal impact just got easier: We added the UN SDGs to the Document details page

on Fri, 01/14/2022 - 15:00

As part of our ongoing work to enhance the research signals and insights that Scopus delivers, in January 2022, we added a new option to the Document details page.

Alongside the publication’s metrics, we will list the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) relevant to that paper.

The list of SDGs that a publication is linked to can be found below the Indexed keywords on the Document details page.

Go from discovery to full-text access on Scopus! New full-text options available now

on Fri, 01/14/2022 - 14:34

Scopus aims to provide the most streamlined path from discovery to access, to enable you to find and make use of full-text version of the research content you are looking for. Wherever possible, we aim to link to the version of record (VOR), also known as the final published version. When this is not possible, we now provide access to the repository/Green Open Access (Green OA) version, when available. Learn more about our updated full-text options on the Scopus Document Details page.

Scopus to partner with Mendeley Web Importer for full-text document download

on Wed, 04/14/2021 - 20:43

As a result of user feedback regarding the limitations of the current Scopus document download solution and the need to have easier and broader access to full-text documents, Scopus will be testing integration with the Mendeley Web Importer (MWI) as a means to achieve broader and seamless full-text access.

Overview:

Scopus users can currently download document full-text PDFs using the Scopus Document Download Manager (DDM) Extension. The extension uses users’ IP credentials to authenticate

Improvements to funding data in Scopus: Now 16.5M articles with funding information and easier to identify funded research

on Mon, 04/12/2021 - 16:48

Overview:

1. Scopus product enrichment (including deduplication work and data linking improvements) in the Funding Information section of publication records has resulted in:

  • more articles with funding information: 16.5M Scopus articles now contain funding information (this includes 900K new articles!)
  • the ability for users to see all identified funders associated with a given work, with a higher level of granularity: 3M Grant ID to Funder relationships have been positively impacted.

Tracking a game changer: quantum computing research trends report

on Tue, 04/06/2021 - 18:38

A new Scopus research trends report explores the exponential growth of publication in quantum computing. A quantum computer can radically outperform a classical computer opening up possibilities for solving large problems quickly. However, significant hurdles need to be overcome before quantum computing hits the mainstream.

If not yet investing, research and business enterprises that want to future proof their strategy can start tracking quantum computing.

The importance of high-quality content in Scopus

on Fri, 02/12/2021 - 14:53

Maintaining the integrity of Scopus and its high-quality, curated content is of paramount importance to us. Scopus is vigilant in identifying and discontinuing journals that are, or have become, predatory.

Nature recently published an article based on research looking into predatory publishing using Beall’s list as a definition for predatory journals. Beall’s list has not been maintained since 2017.

This article is based on a study from 2017 which we were aware of.

Preprints are now in Scopus!

on Thu, 01/28/2021 - 21:39

We are excited to announce that Scopus is now incorporating preprints as a content type in Author Profiles to help Scopus users discover the latest contributions of a researcher. Preprints are non-peer-reviewed publications and are directly derived from arXiv, bioRxiv, ChemRxiv and medRxiv servers (with SSRN coming later this year) and follow their respective curation policies. Preprints do not affect existing publication and citation metrics in Scopus.

Scopus covers preprints from 2017
