In this Scopus Webinar, Scopus Product Manager, Kai Wan, joined us to share some best practices on how to use Scopus analysis tools in your research. Based on minutes 00:11:03–00:15:18 of his presentation, this tip & trick shares why and how to use the Scopus Citation overview tool.

The Scopus Citation Overview tool offers an interactive way to:

  • View the citation trend for a set of documents
  • Find all publications citing a specific document (or set of documents), and

Since launching a more streamlined interface in February, the Scopus Team has been working on additional site developments that include enhancing Scopus analysis tools as well as improving ORCID functionality.

Taking a close look at the Scopus analysis tools, the team made some changes that better support day-to-day research tasks. As a result all analysis tools have been redesigned to provide a more consistent experience across Scopus. Specifically, these 3 tools have been improved and renamed and now include new features such as the option to export charts and graphs.
