Scopus users with personal accounts - please read

* This applies only to Scopus users who have created a personal Scopus user account after logging in as a University of St Andrews user *

(A Scopus user account allows you access to personalised features such alerts, saved searches, etc.)
  • Enhancements to Scopus are scheduled to take place soon.  These will allow you to synchronize your Scopus user account with your institutional login to Scopus/ScienceDirect.
  • In a few weeks time, all Scopus personal account users will receive a direct e-mail with further instructions.
  • You will be asked to login to your account using a personalised link, in order to preserve your existing Scopus profile and any personalised alerts, saved searches, etc., while this migration is carried out.
  • This process will only need to be done once.
  • If you do not follow these instructions, you will lose your profile and personal settings. 
  • You will know that the process has been successful as you will then be able to login to Scopus, Reaxys and ScienceDirect. 
NB: Please look out for this forthcoming direct e-mail, and check your junk/spam folder to make sure you receive it.
