See How CiteScore Metrics Are Progressing with CiteScore Tracker

on Tue, 05/08/2018 - 15:24

With the best coverage of abstracts and citations across disciplines and the globe, Scopus is well-positioned to enable users to analyze the research landscape—and CiteScore is one of the latest research metrics available for this purpose.

CiteScore metrics, which measure the impact of thousands of journals by calculating the average number of citations per article over a three-year period, can help researchers determine which journals they most want to publish in. The CiteScore 2017 values are going to be released soon and will provide an informative overview of the over 22,600 scholarly journals that are indexed in the Scopus database (the CiteScore 2016 values can be found here).

While this annual scoring is very insightful, what if you want to get a more immediate look at a journal’s performance? That’s where CiteScore Tracker comes in.

An improved way to check your Scopus Author Profile!

on Wed, 04/04/2018 - 19:14

We are excited to announce the redesigned Scopus Author Feedback Wizard, enabling users to easily review their Scopus Author Profile and submit corrections.

Your Scopus Author Profile (automatically created by Scopus) showcases various indicators including number of citations, publication history and h-index. These metrics may be used for tenure, funding and for other research performance based decisions; therefore, it is important to ensure your profile reflects your information correctly. Despite the sophistication of the algorithmic profiling used by Scopus, algorithms cannot always match all documents to a single profile with 100% accuracy. That is why the Scopus Author Feedback Wizard allows you to review your Scopus profile and submit feedback.

Even if you do not have access to Scopus, you can still review your profile and submit corrections, making sure that the correct papers are associated with your preferred profile name.

You can also submit changes on behalf of another

The Article Level Open Access (OA) indicator is now available in Scopus.

Scopus has partnered with CrossRef to retrieve Open Access information for ~2M records in Scopus. This currently includes “Gold” OA, either in OA journals or hybrid journals

Users can now view open access articles which was previously only indicated at the journal level:

Users can also search for only OA and/or filter their results to only show OA:

Additionally, users can now find the access type when they export documents:
