Scopus Author Profiles

Scopus is a database of publications and citation information from Elsevier. Your Scopus author profile will allow you to keep track of your publications and citations. A profile is created for you when you are listed as an author on more than one article or book chapter that appears on Scopus. You can claim this profile and make changes to it to make sure the information is correct. Other people can look up your name on Scopus and see your publications and citations on your profile.

How to claim your Scopus profile

First, you will need to find your author record on Scopus:

  • Go to Scopus and log in with your college username and password
  • Select Authors in the search menu
  • Type in your own name and search
  • Find your author profile in the search results and click on your name 
  • Check that your name, affiliation and list of publications are correct and complete

If anything on your profile is incorrect or there are publications missing, you can claim the account and request changes. First, create a Scopus account, or sign in if you already have one. Then follow these steps to request changes to your profile:

  •  Select “Edit profile.”
  • Choose your preferred name
  • Review the documents on your profile and remove any that are incorrectly attributed to you
  • Search for any missing documents
  • Select your documents and “Confirm author.”
  • Select “Review affiliation" to continue
  • Choose your most recent affiliation from the dropdown list.
  • Select “Confirm and submit.”

These changes may take a while to appear on your profile. Remember to check your Scopus profile regularly and keep it up to date.

Connect your Scopus profile to ORCID

You can also connect your Scopus profile to ORCID to automatically update your ORCID profile. See instructions for linking your ORCID profile here.
