Funding Acknowledgement Information Available for 9 Million Articles

on Tue, 04/09/2019 - 20:17

Scopus allows users to search the funding acknowledgement section of ~9 million documents, making it simple to find previously funded research.

Why is previously awarded funding data important?

  • It enables researchers to see what research has been funded by whom in order to prepare for their own grant submissions; and to support a current grant application by showing information about previous performance
  • It enables institutions and funders to determine how much research is associated with funding they have sponsored; and to ensure that funding mandates are being adhered to

What’s available in Scopus?

  • Funding acknowledgment information is available for ~9M Scopus documents
  • This information is easily discoverable within the refine results section of the search results. This allows users to track the research output and influence for a funding body or a specific grant

  • You can also conduct a search for all funding information to find

PlumX Metrics – already available on Scopus records – are comprehensive, item (article)-level metrics that provide insights, beyond traditional citation metrics, into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and more).

Introducing the PlumX Metrics API

Now, PlumX Metrics are also available via the PlumX API for Scopus customers for deeper and more flexible benchmarking and analysis purposes.

When Scopus customers access the API, they will receive a set of metrics for Scopus documents, including citations, usage, captures, mentions and social media.

More information about this API can be found on the Elsevier developer site.

Scopus makes millions of open access articles easily discoverable

on Tue, 12/04/2018 - 01:44

With Elsevier’s recent partnership with Impactstory, a nonprofit that creates online tools to make science more open and reusable, researchers are now able to discover millions of peer-reviewed open access (OA) articles with ease.

Making open access (OA) content more accessible

The OA movement has made it possible for scientific research to become more widely available. But while OA articles are free to access, they are not always easy to find. Scopus users have been able to locate OA content by filtering results for articles published in journals designated as open access, but now that scope has been significantly widened.

Access over 8 million OA articles on Scopus

Scopus has now broadened users’ ability to discover open access content thanks to a new partnership with Impactstory, a nonprofit that develops online tools to promote open science.

From the refine results facets on the left, there is now an option to refine the search results on Patent Offices.

 

Author ID in CSV & TXT export

A column for Author IDs will be added in the document export options for CSV and TXT. This column will contain the author profile IDs of the authors for the exported references.

How Scopus Powers Research Solutions for Experts Worldwide

on Thu, 06/14/2018 - 22:45

It’s possible to keep up-to-date and avoid information overload; here’s how

It seems to get harder and harder to be a researcher, not least because of the ever-growing volume of studies being published. You’re under pressure to keep up with all the latest findings (not only in your own discipline but often in others that might impact your work). And it’s not enough to know about specific results and scour huge volumes of data; you need an overview of the trends, emerging data sources and potential collaborators.

All of this while also managing your career.

It’s exhausting; just imagine if you had to do it manually.

Luckily that’s not the case: there are tools, platforms and databases you can use to stay on top of the information and not get overloaded. Like Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed scientific literature.
