Scopus is the largest abstract and citation multidisciplinary database of peer-reviewed literature, with bibliometric tools to track, analyze and visualize research. Published by Elsevier, it contains over 22,000 titles from more than 5,000 publishers around the world.
Like Web of Science, Scopus also offers data on the number of citations received, H-index, etc. Scopus ID is the unique 11-digit identifier that this database assigns to each author profile. It makes it possible to unify different signature variants of the same author under a single code.
The Benefits of Registering as an Author
Your author profile on this database is created automatically as soon as a publication with your signature is indexed in Scopus, so it is highly recommended to create an account and link it with your profile.
By doing this, you will be able to edit and control the information that appears about you and your publications, unify your different forms of signature in the same record, and create alerts so that you are informed whenever a publication bearing your name is indexed or someone quotes you. This database also offers you some metrics, such as your H-index or the total citations received, and there is the possibility of linking it with author profiles from other platforms such as ORCID.
