Access Scopus Anywhere

The Scopus Alerts mobile app is available to DMU faculty, students, and staff. 
 
If you do not already have a Scopus username and password here’s how to set up your personal account:

  1. Access Scopus from the DMU network  
  2. Register for a personal account. You will need to use your DMU email address (not a personal one) so Scopus can verify your DMU affiliation.
  3. Download the SciVerse Scopus Alerts (institutional subscribers version) mobile app from Itunes or Google Play
  4. Use the same username and password you created on the website to log into Scopus Alerts mobile app. 

If you are unable to get into the Scopus mobile app but feel that you are entitled to access, please first check that your username and password is the same as was registered on www.scopus.com. Then make sure that you entered your email address from the institution that offers you Scopus; If you use an email provider like Yahoo or Gmail Scopus will not be able to check if you’re affiliated with DMU.

 A: You can search and browse all indexed content, save articles as favourites, set up alerts for your favourite searches and citation alerts for when a particular article is cited.
 
Q: Will Scopus.com recognize what I’ve done in the mobile app?
