Scopus has recently added over 195 million more cited references dating back to 1970 to complement the database's existing records that date back 1788 and further increase the depth of content.
Added cited references mean:
•more extensive bibliometric and historic trend analysis
•more complete author profiles
•improved h-index measures for authors who began publishing prior to 1996

As a librarian, you want to introduce your early career researchers to processes and tools that will save them time, improve their workflows, and set them up as good contributors to the scholarly ecosystem. But it can be difficult to keep up-to-date yourself with features across multiple products that address different needs. That’s why we thought we’d try something a little different in our first Library Connect webinar of the year.
We’ve asked a PhD candidate and some of our product whizzes to give you a quick review of features in Mendeley, Scopus, ScienceDirect and Hivebench that can help your researchers work smart, work together and stay up-to-date.
Librarians will discuss metrics-related library services for the individual (grad student, faculty/researcher) to inform career development, publishing decisions, etc., and at the department level for the purpose of analysis and benchmarking. Other highlights include an overview of the world of metrics, the mainstreaming of altmetrics, and a look at the new Scopus Article Metrics module.Read more >
The SciVal API allows you to programmatically retrieve metrics for use in your own software applications.
Join Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) & Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) for an introduction to the new SciVal API, what it is, where it can be accessed and how it can be utilized. Joe, who built the SciVal API, will give a demonstration of how you can create a small application using the SciVal API and Scopus APIs together.
An API stands for Application Programming Interface, and it provides a way for programs to talk to one another. The SciVal API gives access to a comprehensive basket of metrics for researchers (Scopus Author profiles) and all 8,500+ institutions available in SciVal.
The API returns data machine-readable format that enables software, rather than humans using the scival.com platform, to use the data. Consequently, this allows developers to write programs that automatically extract metrics from SciVal periodically, and use that data in their Institutional Repository systems, websites and for richer visualizations in tools like Tableau.
How librarians are raising researchers’ reputations:
An exploration of academic networks, profiles and analysis
With the continued extension of the academic research enterprise – both locally and globally – librarians are being asked to support researchers and the research organization with new services. Learn how three librarians from leading institutions are implementing data, tools and strategies to advance their researchers and strengthen their organizations' research mission during a free Library Connect webinar.
CHRIS ERDMANN, Head Librarian, John G. Wolbach Library and Information Resource Center, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
HEATHER CHISHOLM, Programme Manager for Collaboration and Student Centric Streams, Information Technology and Service Department, Imperial College London

•Establishing researchers’ identity and authority
•Sharing and collaborating remotely
•Collecting, annotating and storing bibliographies
•Developing international visibility
•Applying academic networks and profiles, such as Mendeley, ORCID and Scopus
Registration is required for this live 50-minute webcast. It will be broadcast internationally and includes time to ask the panelists questions. Questions for the panel can be submitted in advance during the registration process. The webcast is a complimentary event and part of Elsevier’s Library Connect program for academic, health sciences, corporate and government librarians.
Every year, disasters impact human lives and take a significant economic toll. Science plays a key role in reducing disaster risk and mitigating impact. For the report, A Global Outlook on Disaster Science, Elsevier has partnered with leading international institutions and drew upon high-quality global data including Scopus to examine the state of worldwide disaster science research. Attend this webinar with Elsevier presenters, Anders Karlsson and Basak Candemir to hear the report’s key findings and how it can support policy- and decision- makers at governments and universities on the topic of natural and man-made disastersRead more >

For librarians as researchers and librarians supporting researchers:
What is your relationship with research?
Conducting research can be richly rewarding in terms of career development, institutional enrichment, and understanding the needs and pressures of library users. Many librarians and information professionals have a dual role with respect to research: leading their own research/participating as part of a research team, and advising other researchers on achieving research impact.
Join our webinar presenters as they explore three critical facets of managing a research career and reputation. Eminent LIS scholar Carol Tenopir will begin with a presentation based on the new Library Connect ebooklet Librarians Do Research Too! She will outline an easy-to-follow blueprint for LIS professionals to begin their own research projects. Manon Burger will then describe how to prepare and promote articles to increase their visibility and attract readers. Wouter Haak concludes with information on measuring research impact via My Research Dashboard, a new service being rolled out to Elsevier authors that includes metrics, such as citations, usage, views, scholarly mentions and more.
