Photovoltaic research on ScopusPresentation Transcript
Photovoltaic Technologies Discover the technologies and people behind them with Scopus
Due to the growing demand for
clean sources of energy, the
manufacture of solar cells and photovoltaic
arrays has expanded dramatically in recent years
Silicon vs. Organic Solar Cells
Photovoltaic Energy is electrical energy that is made directly from sunlight.
Most of the solar cells produced today are made of thin slices or layers of silicon.
New developments in the field include organic' solar cells
Organic solar cells use dyes as a phenomenally thin layer and organic conductors to capture the sunlight and convert it to electricity.
Discovering New Technologies & the Researchers Behind Them
Through Scopus extensive coverage of journals and conference proceedings on materials, solar energy and photovoltaic research and its in-depth search and analysis capabilities we can answer questions such as:
Who are the prolific researchers working in this field?
What are the technologies being developed?
How did the field progress?
There are multiple ways to search a subject on Scopus
The search results page displays facets that indicate prolific
authors, institutions, journals etc.
A search can ne limited to one or more facets
Author Zoom - in
Focusing on an author can be performed using the facets on the main results page
Author refinement displays the journals he/she published in, his/her co-
authors , subject areas and affiliations
The “Author Search” enables a comprehensive
identification of specific author/s
Author Search Results
An author main results page displays name variations and linked profile page.
A link to an author’s documents and latest publication is also available
Author publications analysis
Linked publications and citations enables a comprehensive view of a researcher’s work through the years
Citations analysis is available from the author profile page
The h -Index
Subject Area- Zoom-in
In addition to subject and author searches, the “Affiliation Search” allows for focused discovery of institutions
Source Search The Journal analyzer enables the discovery of specialized publications
Journal Analyzer – Total Citations The Journal analyzer enables a close examination of a journal’s impact and importance to the field
Journal Analyzer - Articles Published
Journal Analyzer -% Not Cited
Enhanced Information within an Article
Each article displays citations,
references and ability to expand
the search by using the “Find
relevant documents” section
18 million patents are available on Scopus.
The Patents are indexed by Scirus
Patents are a significant source for technical information.
Pending and granted patents are indicators of a field’s progress
