Affiliation identifier

 

The Scopus Affiliation Identifier distinguishes among affiliations that have similar names by assigning each affiliation in Scopus a unique number and grouping together all of the documents affiliated with an organization.

This feature is especially useful for distinguishing between institutions or departments that have the same department names such as the Department of Physics.

Additionally, Scopus distinguishes between affiliations that are formatted differently in publications.

For example The same department could appear in a document affiliation as Dept. of Genetics; in another as Department of Genetics; and in another as Genetics Department. Scopus Affiliation Identifier matches the documents from a single organization even if the organization is cited differently.

 

You can search using the Scopus Affiliation Identifier from the Affiliation, Author, and Advanced search forms.

Note

Documents can only be assigned to organizations if the document's citation has sufficient information.

For example If a document is missing or has inaccurate affiliation information, linking it to the appropriate organization is not possible. Individual organizations appear separately on the Make Affiliation Selection page but can be included when you view documents.
