Your Scopus author profile

The Scopus author profile has been redesigned to help authors to give more  prominence to their work. Your H index, citations and number of documents are prominent along with a Follow this author button to allow people to keep up with the new work you publish.

This is a nice feature. However, some people find that Scopus has incorrect information about the papers they have written, particularly those with a common surname. If you have papers in Scopus it would be a good idea to carry out an author search for yourself to check your profile and use the Request author detail corrections link under Follow this author if you find mistakes. You may find that papers you wrote have been linked to another author so it is worth while to check.

Other new features include the option to export results to Mendeley and also options to search for research funder within advanced search. More information is available from the Scopus blog.
