Scopus Author Profiles

Scopus Author Profiles allow researchers to: 

  • Showcase research output 

  • Demonstrate impact and collaborations  

  • Update personal and departmental websites, CV’s and institutional profiles 

Author Profiles allow potential employers and funding agencies to:  

  •  Evaluate your work quickly and easily in one place 

  •  Inform hiring and promotion decisions 

  •  Decide which researchers or teams of researchers will receive research grants

Review your Author Profile to make sure it is up to date with the latest publications, and citations. 

Use Author Profiles to look for other researchers (globally and locally) active in the same research field for collaboration or to review the latest research your colleagues have published.

Search for authors using the Author search functionality.
