  • Group that validates a journal that is suggested to be on Scopus; all experts in their subject fields
  • Something that Elsevier is very proud of is Scopus’ international journal coverage. It is very important to capture the surge in publication growth coming from developing countries. China has had a 505% growth in research output over the past 10 years
  • Many institutions also find it difficult to comprehensively identify all published research produced by their researchers (especially those that are no longer with the institute).
  • Here is an example of how a customer at Hong Kong University uses Scopus API to highlight his achievements.And this is an example of how Baystate Medical Center shows off recent faculty publications.We encourage you to register your institute through the Scopus info cite.
  • The new Scopus Alerts (Lite) application, which went live on Wednesday May 12, gives researchers mobile access to the Searching and Alerting features of Scopus. It’s designed to eliminate the need for scientists to seek out a desktop or laptop computer to search for quality research data while travelling, attending conferences or commuting to work. This mobile app includes some of Scopus’s most popular features. It allows researchers to: • Search across thousands of scholarly journals. • Share search results and article links through e-mail or Twitter. • Save important abstracts in one place for easy look-up.• Set up and review e-mail alerts for their favorite searches.• Set up e-mail alerts for when an author cites a particular article.• Annotate abstracts with their own notes.
  • ScienceDirect offers a dedicated image search with e.g., links to its location within the source article to easily understand the context. Users save time by not having to scan complete articles to find relevant images (e.g. figures, photos, tables, and videos)
  • For Life Science users SciVerse ScienceDirect offers articles enriched with contextual information on proteins, genes and small molecules as assembled by European Molecular Biology Laboratory’s service Reflect. Reflect recognizes proteins, genes and small molecules from web pages, and link them to information-rich summaries. These can now be found directly from within the SciVerse ScienceDirect article.
  • Related articles from Reference Works are offered on the right hand side of an article in order to connect essential and fundamental information from reference works on SciVerse ScienceDirect. In that way users can easily access related basic knowledge for broadening their perspective or better understanding a new and unfamiliar topic.
  • By clicking on the underlined key terms within the article, the researcher can zoom in on that term and find an overview of where the key term appears in the article, a description of that term, and related content.
  • e.g. locate key authors and their affiliations, view only tissue-related results, and/or select the full set or a limited number of results to name just a few options.
  • in earth and environmental science journals fromPANGAEA’s data library already links primary data related to journal articles from Elsevier and other publishers. However, rather than searching for data in a repository and then looking for the corresponding article, a researcher is more likely to first find an article in a literature search, and then realize the need to access the corresponding data set.
  • When data sets are available for an article, a PANGAEA icon and link are displayed on the ScienceDirect article. By clicking on the icon…
  • …the user is taken to a page that includes citation information and a link to download the data. The data sets are freely available without a login or subscription.
  • Point out Methods Search application
  • Point Full Text, Abstract and External Icons
  • We plan to integrate all of our products and databases onto SciVerse. We will be starting with SciTopics with the 2011 launch of SciVerse.SciTopics is a free, wiki-like knowledge-sharing service for the scientific community. It offers distilled, authoritative and up-to-date research summaries on a wide range of scientific topics.SciTopics is designed to be a starting point for researchers to gain an introductory overview of a particular topic, while also identifying sources for a more in-depth analysis and coverage of that topic. Unlike other web services for the scientific community, SciTopics does not focus on one specific scientific discipline, but is open to researchers from all scientific areas.SciTopics is characterized by the unique integration of content, searching & rowsing and community features, offering you a wide range of benefits as a researcher or student.Find trustworthy scientific information on the web SciTopics embraces a strict editorial policy to control the scientific quality of the content. This policy includes authorship by invitation only, a ban on anonymous postings (or postings under alias), and general supervision by a group of subject specific editors. In addition, the SciTopics team gives all newly published pages a quick check for completeness, appropriateness, etc.

    More on... SJR
    SJR is a prestige metric – citations weighted depending on where they come from
    - A journal transfers its prestige by citing
    - Prestige transferred = journal’s SJR
    e.g. Lancet SJR 2007 = 1.541 – high prestige
    e.g. Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports SJR 2007 = 0.153 – lower prestige
    A journal’s prestige is shared equally between its citations

    “Just as scientists would not accept the findings in a scientificpaper without seeing the primary data, so should they not relyon (the) impact factor, which is based on hiddendata. As more publication and citation data become available, we hope that people will begin to developtheir own metrics for assessing scientific quality rather thanrely on an ill-defined and manifestly unscientific number.”

  • 39. Scopus API
    Through the Scopus API, any website can incorporate
    Scopus' powerful search capabilities, high quality citation
    data and up-to-date citation counts.
    Why is this Important?
    Sourcing and providing accurate publication data efficiently.
    The very best repositories often miss 40% of their institute’s output.
