Ensure your publications are identified in Scopus

The Scopus Author Identifier (Elsevier) assigns a unique identifier number to each author whose publications are covered by Scopus. By using these numbers, the algorithms review all variants of authors’ names and are able to match authors’ names with 99% accuracy.

Example author record in Scopus

Scopus allocates an 'Author Details' page to each author which provides an overview of the data associated with them, including published documents, where their work has been cited and how many times, past co-authors and their author history, showing how long they have been publishing, the journals and publications they have published in and their current/past affiliations. All of this information can be helpful in deciding who to co-author with in future.

Scopus is also integrated with ORCID so that all of your publications which are indexed in Scopus are automatically added to your ORCID profile. You can populate one using the other by using the Scopus Author Feedback Wizard.
