A six-week online training designed to provide a solid foundation in key functions within Scopus
The Scopus Certification Program for Librarians is a six-week online training designed to provide a solid foundation in key functions within Scopus, as well as introduce advanced and related concepts such as APIs and user outreach. The materials you use within the program are designed to assist you with expanding training and consulting options within your library.
The certification program consists of six online modules in a course on the Canvas learning management system. The modules are:
Each module takes approximately one hour to complete. The modules are anchored by short video tutorials and quizzes, and supplemented with exercises and support materials. The program is one hour per week for six weeks for a total of approximately six hours. Each cohort consists of approximately 25 librarians with potential participation from librarians around the world.
You can complete the training on a day and time of your choosing, but the course liaison does ask that you keep up with the commitment each week.
To become certified, participants must achieve 80% or more on each of the final module quizzes and complete the opening and exit surveys. Participants may retake the quiz if they don’t achieve the necessary mark the first time and are provided with references to the necessary materials to review. Participants who successfully complete the course can download a certificate of completion.
Application and prerequisite
Participants must be librarians or information managers at an institution or company with a Scopus subscription.
There is no fee for the certification; however, participation is by invitation only as spaces are limited. Ask your Elsevier representative about opportunities to enroll in an upcoming cohort.
