Scopus interface has a facelift

Scopus interface enhancements are now live (Copy of an email from Scopus)

Since launching a more streamlined interface in February, the Scopus Team has been working on additional site developments that include enhancing Scopus analysis tools as well as improving ORCID functionality. The release that went live this month reflects the result of these developments.

As a result all analysis tools have been restructured to provide a more consistent experience across all areas of Scopus. Three tools specifically have been improved and renamed and now include new features such as the option to export charts and graphs:

Old Scopus name 

New Scopus name 

Location on Scopus 

Analyze Results Analyze Search Results Document Search Result page 
Author Evaluator Analyze Author Output Author Details page 
Analyze Journals Compare Journals Main search page 

With this last release, all Scopus analysis tools have been moved to JavaScript technology and no longer depend on Flash support in browsers; Apple iOS device users are now able to access the analysis tools.

To learn more about this and other Scopus releases, please use the following resources:
