Scopus increases its export limits

No Comments »

 Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature with smart tools, has just released to new enhancements:

  1. The Scopus export limits have increased from 2,000 to 20,000 records.  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
  1. It is now easier for researchers to freely import their research papers to ORCID through a direct link on the author detail page, shown as follows:

What is ORCID?

ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers. ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and in its cooperation with other identifier systems. ORCID works with the research community to identify opportunities for integrating ORCID identifiers in key workflows, such as research profile maintenance, manuscript submissions, grant applications, and patent applications.

ORCID provides two core functions: (1) a registry to obtain a unique identifier and manage a record of activities, and (2) APIs that support system-to-system communication and authentication. ORCID makes its code available under an open source license, and will post an annual public data file under a CC0 waiver for free download.

 Using Scopus as a researcher you can:

  • Find out who is citing you, and how many citations an article or an author has received
  • Analyze citations for a particular journal issue, volume or year
  • Use this information to complete grant or other applications quickly and easily
  • Use the refine results overview to quickly see the main journals, disciplines and authors that publish in your area of interest
  • Uncover important and relevant articles that you may otherwise miss
  • Check out the work and citations of other authors
  • Click on the cited by and reference links to track research trends and make connections. You can do this within or across disciplines you are interested in
The Scopus advantage:
  • Over 20,500 titles from 5,000 publishers worldwide
  • Contains 49 million records, 78% with abstracts
  • Includes over 5.3 million conference papers
  • Provides 100% Medline coverage
  • Interoperability with ScienceDirectEngineering Village and Reaxys, a unique chemistry workflow solution
