Scopus: A Tool for Authors


Do you find yourself wondering who is citing your work, how your research is being used, or how you can find potential collaborators? Scopus, the world's largest abstract and citation database can help!

Here are 3 ways Scopus can improve your search:

  1. Get more full-text articles. Scopus has twice the articles and four times the journals of PubMed providing a more robust literature search.
  2. Find author profiles including citations counts and h-indexes.
  3. Scopus goes beyond articles, including conference papers, books, and patents.
