Scopus Author ID
What Is It
The Scopus Author ID distinguishes you from other authors in the Scopus database by assigning you a unique number and then grouping all your publications.
What Is It Used for
The author ID is the Scopus' tool to distinguish different authors and build your author profile in the database. It helps managing publication lists and citations.
How to Get One
All authors with publications indexed by Scopus have automatically been assigned a Scopus author ID. To check your ID, run an author search in Scopus.
How to Improve Your Profile
You can merge your publications with the Author feedback wizard if your publications are spread over a number of different author profiles. Run an author search and click on the author's name. Then, click on the link that says "Request author detail corrections". Follow the steps in the wizard to choose which author matches which author to include.
