h-index & Google Scholar Profiles

Scopus is a citation database promoted by a few affiliated universities as the preferred tool to calculate h-index. Generally Scopus requires a subscription to access. Children's Mercy Library Services does not subscribe to Scopus; however, our affiliated universities do. You can access the full version of Scopus through their library holdings or you can use Scopus Preview to complete an author search.

The free author search allows you to search by first/last name and affiliation. The results will show the number of documents contributed to each author, their h-index, and the most recent document title.

A search completed through subscribed access to Scopus will include a detail h-index graph and citation list of documents contributed to the author instead of only the most recent. 

Important things to know about Scopus: 

  • Scopus does not include every journal or publication. Scopus is very exclusive in regards to what publications are included within their citation lists. This means some articles and resources may not be included in your results. Search Scopus' Sources to confirm details regarding which journals and materials are included in Scopus
  • If you have changed institutions or your name, Scopus may have created multiple profiles for you. You can request Scopus merge your author profiles to create one overall profile. Only an author can request this change through the Author Feedback Wizard.
  • The Author Feedback Wizard also allows you to request the addition or removal of articles in your profile. 

Libraries Services is happy to assist with pulling a complete h-index report from Scopus. If you would like for us to assist please complete a request through our Service Now form and include either a copy of your CV or a complete citation list.
