University of Bolton profile in Scopus

Scopus builds institution profiles from the affiliation text in the articles it indexes. Scopus algorithms can identify name variations and link them into one profile. 

Affiliation IDs are assigned to the "parent" institution, as well as any "child" institutions in the institution's hierarchy.

Due to the great variation in the way affiliations are represented by authors and publishers, this automated process can never be exact. Some variants may be missed, and others may be inappropriately included. Authorized users with knowledge of the institution can manually review alternate names to make sure profiles are correct and complete.
