Why do I need to check my profile?

If your Scopus profile is incorrect, it may impact your academic reputation, visibility, and the accuracy of scholarly metrics (eg. citations etc).

In addition, data from Scopus are used in some University rankings. If your publications are attributed to the wrong institution, or are not attributed to you at all, your publication record and citation metrics will not be included in your institution's score.  

What do I do if my details are wrong?

Use the Author Feedback Wizard to submit corrections directly to Scopus. This can include changes to your name as well as necessary changes to your publication list.

Corrections are usually completed in 2-4 weeks. 

How do I add missing documents to my profile?

Please note that the Scopus profile only contains publications that are indexed in Scopus. If you have publications, including books, that are not indexed in Scopus you can request that the publication can be added. 

If your document is indexed in Scopus but not connected to your profile, use the Author Feedback Wizard.

If a document is not available in Scopus, you can request a document ben added to the database

First, Review the Scopus content coverage policy

For Book suggestions, closely review the Scopus Book Suggestion Agreement

Complete the Profile and content corrections Support Center form.

Linking your ORCID to your SCOPUS ID will allow you to import your publication details from Scopus to your ORCID profile. Please note, you cannot populate your Scopus profile with your ORCID publication details.
