About Scopus Author Profile

What is a Scopus Author Profile? 

A ​Scopus Author Profile is a unique record of a researcher's publications in Elsevier's Scopus and ScienceDirect products. A Scopus Author Profile is automatically generated when at least one article by this author is  indexed in Scopus. It includes a Scopus Author ID, an 11-digit unique identifier. Additional articles are added to the Scopus Author Profile by an algorithm based on the document's metadata supplied during publication.

Does UTSA have a subscription to Scopus?

No, UTSA does not have a subscription to Scopus. We subscribe to its competitor, Clarivate's Web of Science. However, Scopus offers free tools with limited functionality to look up author profiles and journal rankings.​ Researchers may find their h-index and citation metrics for their publications indexed in Scopus.

Why Should I Care about Scopus Author Profile?

It is important for researchers to be aware how their work appears in databases and Google Scholar because it may affect citation counts and subsequently your research impact metrics. Is your information correct? Are there researchers with similar names? Is it correctly attributed to you?

In addition, Scopus is used as a bibliometric source for compiling several university rankings.
