Authors are encouraged to update and make corrections and updates to their own Scopus Author profile periodically. This will ensure the right publications are linked to your record and other researchers are able to accurately identify you on Scopus If you have missing publications, multiple author profiles, or incorrect documents, you may perform these steps below to rectify them yourself. Doing so is easy! Authors are strongly encouraged to report these changes yourself as you would know your publications and records better than anyone else. Your Scopus Author profile is also identifer related to your publication records over at Scopus/Elsevier and is not managed by NUS Libraries.

1. In Scopus, run an author search for the author. A result listing for Scopus authors will be displayed.

2. From the search results page, select the author profiles to be merged and click Request to merge authors. You will need an Elsevier account to complete this process.

3. You will be led to the Scopus Author Feedback Wizard where you can select your preferred name, merge profiles, add and remove documents or update your affiliation. Choose whether you are editing your own profile or requesting changes on behalf of someone else. Click Continue.

4. You will be able to make changes to your preferred name, affiliations, documents and profiles here in the Author Feedback Wizard.

5. Click on Documents to expand the list of publications. Review and remove any documents that do not belong to this merge by clicking on X Remove from merge

6. If you have other documents that are missing, scroll down to the bottom of this Documents section and click on Search for missing documents on Scopus

7. When you have completed your changes, click on Review changes and then Submit changes

8. After you have submitted your request, you will receive a verification link via email. Once Scopus has confirmed that the two or more IDs belong to the same author, the IDs will be merged. This process might take up to two weeks or so.
