Scopus Content Selection & Advisory Board Meeting Next Week

on Thu, 05/29/2014 - 14:10

Twice a year the independent and international Scopus Content Selection and Advisory Board (CSAB) comes together to make decisions regarding Scopus' content and content policies. Our next meeting starts Wednesday in Amsterdam and will coincide with the launch of Scopus' 10 Year celebration. Check out what I last wrote about the work they do.

In addtion to the usual discussion topics: publication ethics, review processes and ongoing content projects such as the Scopus Books Expansion program and the Cited References Expansion program, Board members will get to meet more of the people who work on Scopus! From customer support to market development to the Elsevier Research Intelligence analytics team, I know that the presentations and discussions will be engaging and lively.

So what is the CSAB exactly and what do they do? The Scopus Content Selection & Advisory Board is an international group of scientists, researchers and librarians who each represent a major scientific discipline.

Meeting of the minds: Scopus' CSAB meets next week

on Fri, 10/25/2013 - 14:05

Twice a year the Scopus Content Selection and Advisory Board (CSAB) comes together for a few days to discuss and make decisions regarding Scopus' content and content policies. Our next meeting starts next Wednesday and we are looking forward to discussing topics such as: publication ethics, content type expansion and ongoing content development programs, the overall review and acceptance process, and much more. I can vouch that these discussions are both lively and fruitful for all involved. And as Scopus' product marketing manager, I have the opportunity to present -- and get feedback on -- our new UI launching in January (more to come in subsequent blog posts), our new info site home on, and general marketing strategy. Plus, I get to listen to the dynamic debates. This group is never at a loss for ideas and it is invigorating for the Scopus team to see how dedicated they are to Scopus' success and to the pursuit of science.  

So what is the CSAB exactly?
