Expansion to Scopus citation coverage
Scopus is going to add cited references to its pre-1996 content, part of the Scopus Cited References Expansion programme to become available at the end of 2014. References will go back to 1970, making it more competitive with Web of Science and allowing more analysis.
Remember that it is worth doing an author search for yourself to make sure that you receive credit for all your work – mistakes in databases are not uncommon! Scopus includes a request to merge authors if you find that your name has been entered in more than one form. Scopus help gives more information on how to request corrections.
