Scopus TopCited Highlights Key Articles

Scopus, the abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources from Elsevier (, announced that its new Scopus search application programming interface (API) technology has enabled the launch of Scopus TopCited (, a new website that offers users the top 20 cited articles across 26 subject areas. Scopus TopCited provides visitors an overview of the top cited articles per subject area over the past 5 years. It also displays authors, their affiliations, and cited-by counts, and it integrates this information into Google maps.

Scopus TopCited is one of the first websites to utilize the Scopus search API, which is now freely available. The search API allows Scopus content to be integrated into an application or website easily, offering users a flexible integration solution. For example, organizations can use this application to showcase their own top cited researchers and articles. In addition, Scopus subscribers will be able to access the records directly from the API-created mashup. This new technology empowers third parties to link to more than 33 million records and provides their website visitors with continuously updated data.

The Scopus search API is part of the Scopus Integration Program, which is designed to help third parties add value and content to their online offerings. Developers and institutions interested in creating their own API mashups can request a developer key at or get in touch via the Scopus Integration Program at For more information about Scopus, visit
