Check to see if you have been cited

Scopus records how many times an author has been cited since 1996.

To check if any of your articles have been cited:

  • On the Scopus Search page choose the "Author Search" link.
  • Type the name of the person you would like to look up. You can also type in an affiliation, e.g., Boston College).
  • Click "Search".
  • On the Author results page, click on the correct author and a new page will open that shows personal, research, and history information. On the right side of the page you will see how many documents that author has in Scopus, and below that how many times their articles have been cited since 1996.

You can also set Alerts for an author, so you will be notified by email whenever something new is published.
