Preprint content in Scopus Author Profiles continues to grow with the addition of SSRN

on Wed, 09/08/2021 - 23:48

In January this year, we used this blog to share the good news that preprints have been added to Scopus Author Profiles as a content type to help you get an early view into the research focus of peers and potential collaborators. Preprints can be a helpful complement to peer-reviewed literature to gain insight into researcher endeavors.

At that stage, we enriched 1 million author profiles with more than 900,000 preprints dating back to 2017. Those preprints were drawn from the main preprint servers in the areas of Physical Sciences (arXiv and ChemRxiv) and Biomedical Sciences (bioRxiv and medRxiv).

Now we are excited to announce that we’ve begun adding content from the Social Sciences preprint server SSRN to Scopus Author Profiles. By the end of this year, we expect to feature links to around 250,000 SSRN preprints dating back to 2017, which will bring the number of enriched Author Profiles to 1.4 million.

In addition, it is now possible to request changes to preprints associated

New Author Feedback Wizard (AFW) improvements: we’ve optimized the user journey and added preprints data

on Wed, 09/08/2021 - 23:18

We are pleased to announce a host of Author Feedback Wizard (AFW) enhancements, designed to save you time and improve the quality and accuracy of your Scopus Author Profiles.

So, what’s changed in the AFW?

  1. We’ve simplified the wizard and introduced modular options that support faster and easier updates.
  2. You can now use the AFW to provide feedback on any preprints linked to your profile.
  3. The AFW supports more granular and detailed feedback than ever before.  

The old AFW workflow

Prior to the new release, updating an author profile involved providing feedback on each one of the profile’s components - even those unaffected by your change request.

The new AFW workflow

Now, you can skip that step-by-step process and provide feedback on an individual component of an author profile, saving you time and effort.
