Scopus: Advanced Searching

Having access to comprehensive content and high-quality data is only effective if you can easily find what you’re looking for. Uncovering trends, discovering sources and collaborators, and building further insights requires effective search tools that can quickly identify the right results from over 57 million records.

Identifying trends for key topics Scopus’ literature search is built to distill massive amounts of information down to the most relevant documents and information in less time. With Scopus you can search and filter results in the following ways: Document search: Search directly from the homepage and use detailed search options to ensure you find the document(s) you want
  • Refine results: Scopus makes it easy to refine your results list to specific categories of documents
  • Author search: Search for a specific author by name or by Open Research and Contributor Identifier ID (ORCID)
  • Affiliation search: Identify and assess an affiliation’s scholarly output, collaborating institutions and top authors
  • Advanced search: Narrow the scope of your search using field codes, proximity operators and/or Boolean operators
  • Language interface: The Scopus interface is available in Chinese and Japanese; content is not localized, but you can switch the interface to one of these language options (and switch back to English, the default language) at the bottom of any Scopus page.
This video is part of a series of online tutorials called HeadsUp: Researchers. In it, we show you how to perform literature searches in Scopus using the advanced interface.
