Author ID (Scopus)

The Scopus Author Identifier distinguishes between authors by assigning each author in Scopus a unique number and grouping together all of the documents written by that author.  To determine which author names should be grouped together under a single identifier number, the Scopus Author Identifier uses an algorithm that matches author names based on their affiliation, address, subject area, source title, dates of publication citations, and co-authors.
