How to find a scientist, co-author in the Scopus database?
This search works without registration in the database and allows you to find a scientist by his name and surname
Click the link below
1. Author’s last name
2. Author’s name
3. Orcid will allow to accurately find the desired scientist, excluding namesake and vice versa, will show all the works of the author, even if initially he made mistakes in transliteration
4. Organization in which the author works or worked at the time of publication of the article
After you have entered the author’s surname and name (in this case, the initial), you can select Show only exact match (1), but if you are not sure of the correct name and the name of the scientist, you should remove the mark.
On the opened page, we see the result of the search: The author sought (1) and the name of his work (3); but in the column “Documents” the total number of works of the scientist is 18 (2), this means that his surname and name in other articles could have been written differently.
Next, go to the author’s name
On the information about the author we get detailed information:
2 Number of author’s documents
3 Total number of citations in all documents
4 Organization and country where the author works
5 The branch of knowledge is especially useful for doctoral students who will choose a foreign scientific consultant in their specialty
6 The author’s history, the number of authors and authors with whom the articles were co-written, the number of documents referring to the author.
