DCL Will Upgrade Scopus Citations

Data Conversion Laboratory (DCL) partnered with Elsevier for a multiyear conversion initiative that will enhance 2 million-plus articles published before 1996 in Elsevier’s Scopus database.

DCL’s automated document analysis process will split citations into their component parts in order to enrich the content coverage and granularity of the data in Scopus. The citations will be fully tagged and fully searchable, allowing articles to become more findable and cited more often.

“Adding cited references to pre-1996 articles in Scopus is of great importance to our users. It will allow for thorough measurement of impact and trend analysis of pre-1996 content using the Scopus database,” says Wim Meester, Elsevier’s head of product management for content strategy. “Accurately processing and tagging the cited references in a highly automated fashion is key to making this program successful and bringing value to our users in a timely manner.”
