Scopus User Guide

This is an introduction to the different features in the Scopus database.

Saving Items in a List

As you review your search results, you can add individual or multiple documents of interest to a temporary list, called "My List." All contents included in this list can then be exported to RefWorks or emailed to yourself.

Adding to My List

If you are logged into your personal Scopus account, you have the option to create a permanent list.  This list will not go away until you choose to delete it.  If you do not have a personal Scopus account, you can work with a temporary list, which will be deleted when you log out.  For more information on creating a personal Scopus account, check the tabs to the left of this screen.

While viewing your search results, check the box to the left of any document you wish to add or check the uppermost box in the column to select all results, then click "Save to List."

You can also add to your list while looking at the record for an article.

 

Email List Contents to Yourself

First click "Lists" from the menu at the top of the page.  To email the contents of your temporary list, check the box to the left of any document you wish to email (or check "All" to select all documents) and then click the email icon.

To export your temporary list into RefWorks:

  1. Check the box to the left of any document you wish to email or check the uppermost box in the column to select all documents.
  2. Click "Export."
  3. Select "RefWorks direct export."
  4. In the drop-down menu under "Choose the information to export," select "Citations and Abstract Information."
  5. Click "Export."
  6. A RefWorks browser window will open to process your request. Click "View Last Imported Folder" to view the citations exported from Scopus.
