Scopus User Guide

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

The tutorials and tips on this page show how to work with documents (e.g., papers or book chapters) in Scopus.

Reviewing Documents Tutorial

View Citing Documents

If a publication has been cited, the number of citations will be provided in the right-hand column of the search results. Click on the number to view a list of those publications.   

 

 

 


While viewing a document record, the first few citations are listed in the "Cited by" box on the right side of the page. To view the full list, click on "View all __ citing documents."


My 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.

 

Adding to My List

Documents can be added to "My List" either from the results list or from a document's record.

To add a document to "My List" while viewing an individual document's record, click "More" near the top left of the page, and select "Add to My List."
