Scopus interface changing February 1

Changes are coming to the interface of Scopus that will streamline your workflow by optimizing the interface for core uses.

One important change is that the interface becomes more action driven:  when you select certain results to work with (e.g. for refinement, citation analysis or to export references), the action buttons or links will become “active” & make the experience more intuitive. The results page will be optimized to make it easier to scan your search results.

The Author profile will get a ‘CV-style’ design that will let you more easily scan the main column that includes information such as h-index, documents, &  citations. It will show the 20 most recent documents.  You’ll also be able to see more documents on the free Author profile version that researchers can view without having access to Scopus.

Another important change is that you will now be able to export references directly from Scopus to Mendeley.
