Our profiling strategy
Unlike the competition that relies completely on manual input from
users, our strategy with regard to author disambiguation is to
algorithmically produce the best qualitative profiles possible for
every single author captured in Scopus.
And, at the same time provide easy to use tools to the researchers
community to feed back their manual input to increase the accuracy
of their respective profiles.
Scopus profiles are:
• Comprehensive (~18M Author and 8.5M Affiliation Profiles)
• Easy to integrate (via RSS or the Scopus APIs)
• Widely used (interoperable with ORCID, VIVO)
• Algorithmically created and can be manually updated and
corrected

And Author feedback got easier and faster…
• Of the 8,634 requests processed in April.
• 7,411 incidents were Author Profile requests submitted via the Wizard. The
average turnaround time for these 7,411 requests was 2.92 days.
- 5,472 Wizard requests could be processed automatically via automatic
workflow
- 1,939 Wizard requests needed manual intervention
- 53 Wizard requests did not fully appear online and were completely or
partly rejected.

What is the Challenge? Scholarly Name Ambiguity
Many researchers that too closely
resemble one another.

Researchers publish
under name variations.

What is the solution? ORCID!
ORCID, the Original Researcher Contributor
ID, provides a persistent digital identifier that
distinguishes you from every other researcher
and, through integration in key research
workflows such as manuscript and grant
submission, supports automated linkages
between you and your professional activities
ensuring that your work is recognized.

ORCID has been gaining users – and using Elsevier
systems!
19
|
How is Elsevier involved with ORCID?
• Elsevier is one of the industry sponsors of the ORCID initiative, and
has representation on the Board
• EES (EVISE), Elsevier Editorial System, has integrated with ORCID
to capture (and assign) ORCIDs at the time of submission
• Scopus allows users to import papers from Scopus to ORCID (or
vice versa) and has other functionality related to ORCID
Add to ORCID is on Author Profile page
- ORCID will appear on Author Profile page as of May 2014 release
- Will be able to search on ORCID as of September 2014 release
-
Three main goals:
•
•
•
Ensure interoperability between ORCID and Scopus Author ID
Ensure ORCID data enhances the quality of Scopus author profiles
Enable use of ORCIDs during Manuscript submission

SNIP: Source-normalized impact per paper
All 20K journals have a Source-normalized impact per paper (SNIP)
measuring contextual citation impact by weighting citations per subject field
- Peer-reviewed papers only
- Field’s frequency and immediacy of
citation
- Database coverage
- Journal’s scope and focus
- Measured relative to database median

SJR: SCImago Journal Rank
All 20K journals have a SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) a prestige metric based on
the idea that not all citations are equal
Prestige transferred when a journal cites
• Citations are weighted depending on where they come from
• A journal’s prestige is shared equally between its citations
Life Sciences

Arts & Humanities
journal
High impact, lots of citations
One citation = low value
Low impact, few on citations
One citation = high value
SJR normalizes for differences in citation behaviour between subject fields

Article Level Metrics
32
|
Reputable Publishers use Scopus data to
provide key assessment metrics
More than 5,000 publishers are indexed in Scopus. Many
use Scopus data and APIs to present journal, article and
citation information to the researcher community.

Integration of article level metrics into Scopus
Mendeley readership
Statistics shows how
many times
Mendeley users have
downloaded a
specific article to
their libraries.
Altmetric is way to
see all of the social
or mainstream media
mentions gathered
for a particular paper
as well as reader
counts on popular
reference managers

Summary
International collaboration is rising and leads to increase of
FWCI.
Scopus Author Profiles are algorithmically created and we
work with you and the research community to make
improvements in order to find potential collaborators.
ORCID is a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you
from every other researcher and is integrated in Scopus.
Scopus and Scopus data is being used by researchers,
publishers and leading institutions to inform decisions
about research output and research assessment.
Journal and article level metrics are available in Scopus
and help researchers and research organizations to evaluate
research and researchers.
