Scopus has a useful feature that simplifies searching by institutional affiliation, a process which can be cumbersome in other databases. An institutional affiliation search in Scopus creates a ready- made bibliography of publications by UTHSCSA authors sorted by journal. Scopus uses a combination of algorithms and a comprehensive knowledge base to disambiguate institutional name variants, identifying and matching an organization with its research output.
To begin an institutional affiliation search, select Scopus from the Databases section of the library’s website (http://www.library.uthscsa.edu). From the Scopus search screen, select “Affiliation search,” then enter University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
A recent Scopus affiliation search identified over 28,000 documents affiliated with the Health Science Center. The top five journals with publications by HSC authors were Journal of Biological Chemistry, Federation Proceedings, Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, Infection and Immunity, and Cancer Research.
Tipsheets for Scopus and other databases can be found on the library’s tipsheet page: http://library.uthscsa.edu/2011/11/tipsheets-user-guides/. A Scopus Quick Reference Guide can be found here.
