Your Scopus Account
Set Up an Account
If you have a personal account, Scopus offers personalization features that allow you to set preferences, save searches, set up e-mail alerts, create RSS feeds of new articles from a search or topic, add applications to assist with research, and use mobile applications. You will also need an account if you wish to manage your Author profile.
To set up an account (it’s free!), first access Scopus through the UA Libraries. In the upper right corner, click the "Create account" box. Fill in the information. Your email will be your username.
(note: If you have already created a personal account in another Elsevier product, like Mendeley or ScienceDirect, you do not need to create a new account in Scopus. You may log in with your Elsevier credentials.)
