Scopus provide useful help and tutorials, details of coverage and short videos, such as this one.
Do documents published while at previous institutions appear in an author’s publication list? Yes. All items in Scopus linked to an author will appear in their document list, regardless of the research organisation they were affiliated to at the time. However they will only appear in the document list of the affiliated research organisation, which makes acknowledgement of affiliation more important than ever.
Does the Library support the use of SciVal, Elsevier’s research intelligence tool? No, not currently.
