Scopus added ‘Export list to SciVal’ feature


Scopus added ‘Export list to SciVal’ feature

March 25, Scopus added the ability to directly export a list of Scopus
documents to SciVal, Elsevier’s benchmarking and analytics product
allowing the user to turn them into a publication set in SciVal.
Available to users with access to both products, the Scopus to SciVal
export feature reduces the number of steps when using the two products
This new feature further increases the interoperability between Scopus and SciVal, both products within the Elsevier Research Intelligence portfolio.

Here is how the Scopus to SciVal export works:

Step 1: Enter your search in Scopus.

Step 2: From your search results, select the desired documents and add them to your Scopus list.

Under ‘More,’ select ‘Add to My list’.


Step 3: From ‘My list, you will now see the option to ‘‘Export your list to SciVal’


Step 4: Once
you select documents and click on this icon, a pop-up screen will appear
asking if you want to ‘Continue to SciVal’. Selecting this
automatically re-directs you to SciVal:

Step 5: Next,
you have the option to save the Scopus results list. Once saved, this
list is automatically added to ‘Publication Sets’ in the SciVal
‘Benchmarking’ module. This module provides you with advanced
capabilities to perform further in-depth analysis using the exported
Scopus results.


Note: The Scopus ‘Export to SciVal’ option can export up to 2,000 documents and can only be used for post-1995 data.

  1. Hello. What if your list is already a saved list? I find that the "export your list to scival" option is only appearing when the list is not saved, but I'm failing to export an already saved list from my account. Please help.
