Show more influence and attention to your research than you have ever been able to show before. Scopus metrics are a comprehensive, trustworthy and transparent way to demonstrate your journal, article, author and institutional influence.
CiteScore™ metrics: Introduced in 2016, a family of eight indicators to analyze the publication influence of serial titles. CiteScore metrics offer more robust, timely and accurate indicators of a serial title’s impact.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): A prestige metric for journals, book series and conference proceedings that weights the value of a citation based on the subject field, quality and reputation of the source.
Source-Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): Measures contextual citation impact by taking differences in disciplinary characteristics into account; can be used to compare journals in different fields.
Four Scopus-specific metrics can be found on a document’s metrics details page: total number of citations by a date range of the user’s choosing, citations per year for a range, citation benchmarking (percentile) and Field-weighted Citation Impact. We've also recently added a new metric — views count — so users can understand usage at a glance.
PlumX Metrics: Also found on a document’s metrics details page, five comprehensive, item-level metrics that provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment.
Our Research Metrics Guidebook provides facts about how data underlying the metrics in Scopus (and SciVal) are used, how the metrics are calculated and displayed, and how variables besides performance can affect the metrics.Download the guidebook (opens in new tab/window)
