Scopus alerting system updating on October 2nd

on Mon, 10/02/2017 - 15:00

Today, on October 2nd, Scopus alerts are migrating to a new system. During this time the “edit” and “create” functions will be deactivated for less than 24 hours. You will still continue to receive alert emails, but will not be able to create new alerts or modify existing alerts for that window of time. A message box will appear on the alerts page to notify users of the brief downtime.

What does this mean for alert recipients after the migration?

  • Your alerts will appear with a refreshed template, offering a cleaner look and feel.
  • The email sender address will change to: scopus@notifications.elsevier.com rather than alert@scopus.com
  • Alerts will display the first 20 documents instead of 25
  • Some of the rarely used alerting frequency options will be removed
  • For approximately one month after the migration (October 2 thru early November), it’s possible you may receive alerts from both systems

As an example, here is what the new Search Alert email will look like:

DataSearch

DataSearch (https://datasearch.elsevier.com/) is an Elsevier search engine dedicated to research data. It is the first search engine that can search not only in the description or metadata of the articles, but also in the data itself. It is also possible to see a preview of the data directly from the search results, as well as downloading the full dataset. More information about DataSearch can be found here.

The new collaboration with DataSearch means that when you run a search in Scopus, the same search will concurrently run in DataSearch. If any data results are found, you will find a link (listing the number of results found) on the Scopus search results page. Clicking on this link will open a new window in DataSearch.

Scopus experiencing issues with Alerts

on Mon, 01/04/2016 - 22:25

Scopus has been experiencing issues with its Alerts system since December 28, 2015. This means that no Alerts have been sent since the 28th. The root cause of the issue has been identified and the Alerts are currently being re-processed. We expect all systems to be working properly within the next 24 hours. We apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused and we will update this post (and social media) when the issues are resolved.

Upgrades to Scopus: Routine Maintenance on October 26

on Mon, 10/14/2013 - 12:59

On October 26, Scopus will undergo routine database maintenance. During this time, we do not expect there to be any downtime for users and Scopus will function as it normally does. For stability reasons we will not load any new content in the week of October 18-25. This also means that the Alerts will be put on hold; users will not miss any alerts, they will just be sent later than usual. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
