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.
