Researcher Identity & Impact

This guide is designed to assist you with expanding the impact of your research by developing your researcher profile and explaining how metrics work.

Scopus Author ID

The Scopus Author ID is created automatically when two or more articles are published in the database and linked to one name. Scopus gets daily updates to its content from thousands of publishers, which it uses to generate new author profiles and update existing ones. No additional registration is required, as the profile is assigned automatically when a paper is published. However, profile updates can be requested in order to: set a preferred name, merge profiles, change affiliation, add or remove documents. The Scopus Author ID allows you to:

  • view your publications in one place
  • explore various metrics related to your work and profile (h-index, citation counts, publications and co-authors).
  • link your ORCID iD to your Scopus Author profile.

Note: Creating a user account in the Scopus database is different from having an Author Profile there. They can be linked to one another, however.
