Overview of ORCID, ReseacherID, Scopus Author ID, and My Google Scholar Citations.

Scopus Author ID

​  Scopus Author ID is a unique 11-digit identifier automatically assigned by Elsevier in its ScienceDirect and Scopus products.

  UTSA does not have a subscription to SCOPUS, but you can utilize a free  Scopus Author Lookup tool to obtain up-to-date citation metrics to your works in publications indexed by Scopus. 

​  Scopus is a competitor to Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters)).

  Scopus Author ID is system-generated.  You can request author detail corrections and add your publications to Scopus.

  Obtain your h-index in publications indexed by Scopus.

  Exchange data with ORCID.

  ​Scopus indexes over 22,000 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers since 1996:

  • Life Sciences (agriculture, biology, neuroscience, pharmacology)
  • Social Sciences (arts & humanities, business, history, information sciences)
  • Physical Sciences (chemistry, engineering, mathematics)
  • Health Sciences (allied health, dentistry, nursing, veterinary medicine)

  In addition to peer-reviewed journals, Scopus covers trade publications, open-access journals, books, conference papers, and patents.

Limitations of Scopus Author ID

  Limited functionality as UTSA does not subscribe to Scopus.
