Example of faculty publication in Scopus for Steven Meshnick

Use the Library citation databases to track how your publications (Books & Articles) got cited.


  • Like Web of Science and Google Scholar, Scopus allows you to perform citation searches to see how many times a work has been cited.
  • Scopus can notify you when someone cites your work or when an author in your network publishes a new article.
  • Each indexed author has a homepage with an overview of their work, affiliation, and a list of articles that have cited their work.
