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.
