Scopus author profiles

Scopus author profiles are algorithmically generated when your publications are first indexed in Scopus. You can find several author metrics on these pages, including h-index, scholarly output and total citations.  

Finding your author profile

  1. Login to Scopus and click on the 'Authors' tab.
  2. The default search is by author name.  Enter your last name and first initial in the search boxes.
  3. Add your affiliation in the 'Add affiliation' search box.  This step is only necessary if you have a common name.
  4. Click on your name to see your profile.
It is not recommended to search using your ORCID iD as it will only work if you've connected your ORCID to Scopus and will only find the profile that has been linked.  In some instances you may have multiple profiles, which you need to find and merge.

Checking your author profile

  1. Click on 'View more' to see other names, identifiers including your ORCID iD and your Institution history.  Check this information.
  2. Check your publications to ensure they are all authored by you and are a complete list of your published output.  Note: It is unlikely that all of your publications will be indexed in Scopus.

Submitting a correction to your author profile

If, after checking your author page, you identify missing publications, you can submit corrections using the Author Feedback Wizard directly or via your profile page.

It can take approximately 10 business days for changes to your author profiles to be reflected in Scopus.  You can merge and edit your profiles in SciVal, iIf you need to urgently find your publication metrics.  Please speak to your Liaison Librarian about this.

Linking your Scopus author profile to ORCID

You can link your Scopus author profile to ORCID and import your publications from Scopus into ORCID.  This will not keep your ORCID up to date, as this occurs only once during the linking process.  Once you've linked the two systems, you will see a link to your ORCID record on your Scopus author profile and a link to your Scopus author profile in your ORCID record.

  1. From your author details page click on 'Connect to ORCID'
  2. Follow the prompts to complete the connection.

You can also link your profile using the Scopus2ORCID Wizard.
