Upgrades to Scopus

ScienceDirect logo

Two important upgrades have been made to Scopus. The export limits on Scopus have been increased  from 2,000 to 20,000 records and interoperability with ORCID has been improved so researchers can freely import their research papers to ORCID through a direct link on the author detail page.

Users can now download (up to) 20,000 records at a time.  Once the selection has been made, an email with a link to download the CSV data set will be sent to the user with the following fields provided:

  • Author(s)
  • Document title
  • Year
  • Source title
  • Volume, issue, pages
  • Citation count
  • Source and document type
