New design of Scopus Author and Affiliation profiles coming in next release

on Tue, 01/14/2014 - 11:31

With the upcoming release on February 1, we would like to share some information on the major enhancements that will affect the design of the Author and Affiliation pages. The purpose of these changes is to create a better overview of the performance of a certain Author or Institute.

The Author profile will get a ‘CV-style’ design that allows for easier scanning of the main column that includes information such as h-index, documents and citations. It will show the 20 most recent documents instead of the two that are currently in view.  More documents will also show on the free Author profile version that researchers can view without having access to Scopus.

There will be a prominent ‘Follow this Author’ link that will help authors become more visible to their peers; this feature allows users to set up alerts for a when new documents are indexed for a specific author. Important links such as providing feedback on the Author profile, adding the profile to ORCID and setting citation alerts still remain. It will also now be possible to export all documents of an author for use in reference managers like Mendeley and RefWorks directly from the Author profile page.

The Affiliation page will have the same new look and feel as the Author page, easier to scan and key information is better grouped.

Below, you can view screen shots of how the new Author and Affiliation profile pages will look in the new interface.
