Tips for using Scopus: Check your author profile


The REF will be using data from SCOPUS for citations analysis. BIS (Dept for Business Innovation & Skills) used SCOPUS data to map areas of expertise in the UK  in the ‘International Comparative Performance of the UK Research Base, 2011’.


What sort of errors can occur? Most commonly these will come from variant forms of the names of the author and the institution or research body.

AUTHOR DETAILS –If there are variants of your author name, Scopus will try to bring these together  to help locate all of an author’s works indexed in the database. Check your entries by doing an AUTHOR SEARCH Find your name on the list and click on it to view the author profile page.  On the author profile page, you can check your entries and contact SCOPUS to have any errors corrected.
