Get quality bibliometric data and analytical tools to inform your university's ranking strategy

Bibliometric data are key for university rankings calculations, and organizations such as Times Higher Education (THE) and Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) rely on Scopus and SciVal to implement their methodologies and develop performance benchmarks.

With Scopus and SciVal, you can enable research office, library and academic department staff to plan, progress and evaluate research activities with the same quality data and analytical views — enabling your university to better compete at a global level.

Validate research profiles to ensure accurate bibliometric datasets

Bibliometrics data that Elsevier provides to rankings organizations is also used for author and institution profiles in Scopus, the most authoritative A&I database in the world.

With millions of research articles published annually from 7,000+ publishers, Scopus author and institution profiles are kept up-to-date using industry-leading data algorithms and manual expert feedback and curation.

Scopus users can easily view and analyze author and institution profiles

Profile owners use online feedback wizards to request updates such as:

  • Modifying organizational hierarchies

  • Providing current university contact information

  • Setting preferred names for departments and colleges

  • Merging author profiles

  • Adding and removing documents from author profiles

  • Updating author affiliation

"In this process, the average faculty gained about 20 publications, gained 500 plus citations, and gained an h-index of over three. So, these were really institutionally major gains: time saved, faculty more happy, better reporting, higher quality reporting and a rise in our recognition, which then feeds into rankings.”
