Scopus APIs and New Look Website

Scopus has recently updated their website and opened Scopus APIs to all users. If you use Scopus in your research, or if you're looking for a little something more, check out the new updates below.

What is Scopus?
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities.

Accelerate academic research using Scopus APIs

You can now obtain a Scopus API key for free as part of the University’s subscription. You will first need to ensure you have your own Scopus account, which can be set up here. Then, simply go to Scopus APIs and use your login details to obtain your API key.

For more information, including how to use Scopus APIs and why they are beneficial, see Accelerate Academic Research Using Scopus APIs or watch the Scopus APIs Webinar. If you need help with the registration process, check out the tutorial.

Scopus’ New Look Website
Scopus updated the look and feel of their website at the end of September. This update also included some functional changes, such as changes to the navigation bar and addition of a navigation spine including SciVal and My Scopus.
