Five steps to creating a citation overview in Scopus

on Mon, 05/23/2016 - 17:16

In a recent Scopus Webinar, Scopus Product Manager, Kai Wan, joined us to share some best practices on how to use Scopus analysis tools in your research. In this tip & trick, we focus on the Citation Overview tool, which Kai covers in minutes 00:11:03–00:15:18 of his presentation. If you missed the live webinar, you can watch it anytime here.

The Scopus Citation Overview tool offers an interactive way to:

  • View the citation trend for a set of documents
  • Find all publications citing a specific document (or set of documents), and
  • Discover the overall impact of publications in a research area.

Before creating a Citation Overview, here are 2 key points to remember:

  • To use the interactive table within Scopus, select no more than 2,000 items at a time.
  • If you want to analyze a results list >2,000 (and up to 20,000),you will be prompted to request a direct export and receive the information as a .csv file

Tip: It is best to first

Webinar: How Unilever uses SciVal to help accelerate innovation

on Wed, 02/17/2016 - 19:14

“Scopus helps us do more “E-Science” – scientific investigation that can be undertaken more effectively, less expensively, and without having to perform work in the lab that has already been done by others or that isn’t likely to produce relevant outcomes.”

— David Younghusband, Information Systems Specialist, Unilever R&D

The Unilever Information Team uses SciVal, which is underpinned by Scopus data, to help accelerate innovation and boost competitiveness. The advanced analytics and supercomputer technology of SciVal allows them to build a variety of perspectives into research performance and address such challenges as:

  • Finding technology partners
  • Measuring against the competition
  • Identifying emerging technology areas.  

The SciVal team invites you to join an interactive webinar in which the Unilever information team will share how SciVal helps them to solve these challenges.

Everything you need to know about Scopus content but didn’t know to ask

on Mon, 02/08/2016 - 22:23

In last month’s webinar the Scopus team brought you an overview of Scopus. This month, Dr. Wim Meester, Head of Scopus Product Management, joins us to bring a more in depth look at Scopus content and how it is relevant to you. From journals to books to conference papers, how is content selected for Scopus and how does it bring you a full view of what’s happening in your research world? Look to learn more about Scopus content curation and the high quality standards each title must meet and retain in order to be included.

If you have questions about what is and is not included in Scopus, how far back content goes, what the coverage is for your area of interest, or how Scopus content coverage impacts author and article-level metrics, this webinar is for you.                                         

Dr. Meester will also share practical tips and tricks to help you get more from Scopus content.

What’s on your profile page? A tip to check and correct your author details

on Mon, 02/01/2016 - 18:17

Inspired by Jessica Kowalski’s recent Scopus webinar, follow this quick tip to check and correct your profile.

During minutes 21‒25 of her webinar, Jessica speaks about the importance of accuracy in author profiles, especially in regards to career management (watch the webinar). Name ambiguity can impact the correct attribution of your work, career advancement and potential collaboration opportunities. For example, your Scopus details page (see example below) includes performance assessments based on the work identified with your name.

As Jessica explains, to display this information, Scopus uses a powerful algorithm to disambiguate a paper and match it to the correct author profile(s). This algorithm analyzes information such as publishing history, author affiliation and co-citation behavior. However, although extremely sophisticated, algorithms can only go so far.

More content, more features, more to learn. Monthly webinars help you get more from Scopus

Join expert-led webinars monthly and improve your Scopus experience

The start of a new year is often a time of making resolutions, beginning new endeavors, re-evaluating and setting new goals. It’s a time to reflect on the past year and move forward — ideally toward a better and brighter path. One of the new paths the Scopus team is taking this year is to introduce an ongoing webinar program. Nearly every month, one of the Scopus team members will host a topical webinar to bring you more insight into the product, not only to improve your experience with it but also to answer questions about its content, capabilities and vision.

So, no matter what your New Year’s resolutions are — to work more efficiently, to find the most relevant content, to track or measure research impact, or even if you don’t make resolutions — join us regularly to learn something new about Scopus and build your knowledge and understanding about what it can
