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

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
