SciVerse Scopus Alerts App

The SciVerse Scopus Alerts app provides a streamlined interface to locate and share article citations, create alerts, and make notes about articles of interest.

Compatible Devices

The SciVerse Scopus Alerts app is free to download and is available for the iPhone/iPad from the iTunes App Store (iOS 3.0 or later required) and for Android devices from Google Play (Android 1.6 or later required).

App Features

Use the SciVerse Scopus Alerts app to:

  • Search across thousands of scholarly journals from more than 5,000 international publishers.
  • Save important articles in one place for easy look-up.
  • Set up and review e-mail alerts for your favorite searches.
  • Set up e-mail alerts for when a particular article is cited by another author.
  • Share article links through e-mail or Twitter.

Scopus Search


The full-text of articles is not available through this app, only links to citations. Citations can be e-mailed and the full-text retrieved later. It should also be noted that although the app and desktop version of Scopus use the same login/password, information saved in one is not accessible in the other.
