Scopus will no longer support Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) beginning November 3, 2016

on Tue, 10/25/2016 - 23:25

As of November 3 2016, Scopus will no longer support Internet Explorer 9 (IE9). In January 2016, Microsoft announced its official discontinuation of Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10 (more information can be found on Microsoft’s support page).

Scopus is in the process of improving its workflow by updating its user interface to the latest technology, HTML5. Scopus aims to provide the best possible user experience, utilizing the most effective tools and most powerful technology. Moving from older technologies to support new ones enables us to improve the performance of the product and develop a better user experience for all our users. Older browsers like IE9 do not support HTML5, the new industry standard for structuring and presenting content for the web. HTML5 supports mobile devices, doesn’t rely on plug-ins, and provides a faster customer experience.

Chrome 45 and Scopus Document Download Manager

on Tue, 08/18/2015 - 11:28

On September 1, 2015 Google will release version 45 of their Chrome browser. Starting with version 42, the NPAPI plugin in Chrome was disabled by default but users can still work around this and enable it manually, as explained in  our previous Scopus blog post here.

In order for the Scopus Document Download Manager (DDM) to work, it requires the NPAPI plugin to be present in the Chrome browser. With Chrome version 45 this plugin will be permanently removed and users will not be able to manually enable this again.

If you wish to keep using the Scopus DDM on scopus.com we would like to provide the following recommendations:

We are currently investigating an update for the Scopus DDM allowing future Chrome versions to be supported. We will keep you updated.
