2013 SNIP and SJR journal metrics now available in Scopus

on Tue, 07/22/2014 - 16:53

When evaluating the performance of a journal (or an article or individual researcher), we believe that the research community benefits from having access to a broad range of metrics to better understand performance – it's impossible for one metric to serve all the necessary purposes.

Since 2010 Scopus has offered two journal metrics – the Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) and the SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) – via the Journal Analyzer functionality in Scopus.

The Journal Analyzer allows you to select up to 10 journals for comparison; the results are uploaded into graphs, making it easy to see how journals perform relative to each other.

Additionally the SNIP, SJR and now IPP (Impact per Publication) values can also be viewed per journal in the publicly available title list or via the 'Browse sources' tab in Scopus (only SNIP and SJR are currently in the Scopus interface).

Some additional resources for Journal Metrics:

The new Scopus author profile page has arrived

on Tue, 06/03/2014 - 07:57

In conjunction with this year’s Scopus 10 year anniversary, the team embarked on a site improvement program that resulted in the launch of a more streamlined interface in February.  With the overall Scopus house looking better it was time to give the Author Profile page a closer look.

 

Newly revamped, old distractions on the Author Profile page are gone and the best tools remain. For example, if an ORCID ID is associated with a Scopus profile then a link to that ORCID will display on the author detail page. Additionally, a new graph added to the sidebar gives a quick overview of an author’s recent productivity. Best of all, users can sort “Document” and “Cited-by” lists without having to leave the author profile or reload the page.

 

We’ve learned a lot in 10 years, especially that author’s need fewer obstacles and better tools for boosting the visibility of their work.

Scopus changes RIS tags used for export

on Mon, 06/02/2014 - 08:17

We have changed some of the RIS tags to better support the most popular reference managers. As a result, some data is not exporting to specific reference managers -- EndNote, for example -- while it was before the May 31 release.

If you were using a translation filter before 31 May 2014, you may not need it anymore; please try a direct RIS export from Scopus. If you have created your own mapping of Scopus fields in the reference manager, please use this updated RIS field document to adjust the mapping. In case of any doubt, you can also export RIS files from Scopus to any text editor to see the tag names.

Please Note: We are unable to assist you with the specific configuration within your reference manager. If you require help with configuration, you will need to contact the respective vendor. Should you have any other Scopus-related problems with the export, please let us know by contacting your local helpdesk.
