Accelerate academic research using Scopus APIs

on Fri, 10/07/2016 - 18:03

Did you know Scopus data can be used to help facilitate your research and be integrated in your published work? Scopus data has been used to help researchers:

  • Analyze cited-by counts across specific, singular academic disciplines
  • Study relationships between authors’ geographic locations and academic affiliations
  • Analyze the relationship of citing works from a limited set of publications
  • And more.

To make this easier and more efficient, you can now obtain a Scopus API key for free and without having to seek permission — provided you are affiliated with a subscribing institution and using the data in support of academic research.To get an idea of how others are using Scopus data in their published work, run a search in Scopus using: “Scopus data”.

Scopus APIs are a great way to showcase your research, your institution’s work and connect others with Scopus content and data. Additionally, anyone can obtain an API key and use our APIs free of charge, provided that our policies for using APIs and the data are honored.  You can learn about the variety of APIs available for Scopus on our new Scopus API page here.  We also thought it would be helpful to highlight the value each Scopus API provides, one post at a time, starting with this one on the Scopus Cited-by Counts API.

To provide an example of how Scopus APIs can add value, Victoria Rao, the Elsevier Product Manager responsible for both Scopus and ScienceDirect APIs, presents a personal example — using the Scopus Cited-by Counts API to add a dynamic display of her husband’s research accomplishments into his online publication list and CV.

So, rather than a simple list of his authored work, as seen here (figure 1),
