Scopus is another citation resource for retrieving article level metrics.

The citation overview in Scopus includes how often documents were cited by articles indexed in Scopus and were viewed by Mendeley readers. Authors can also set up citation alerts to receive updated citation information about their own or other researchers' works.


  • Only citations from the titles indexed in Scopus are counted.
  • Limited year coverage for citation tracking (available for articles published from 1996 onwards). Scopus is in the process of expanding the timespan.
  • Limited coverage for some subject areas, including arts, math, sociology, etc.
