Preprints are now searchable on Scopus!

Rachel McCullough

As part of our effort to help researchers stay up to date with early ideas and the latest research findings, we are excited to announce that preprints are now searchable on Scopus upon performing a document search.

Preprints are preliminary, unpublished, non-peer-reviewed versions of scholarly papers that precede publication and act as an early indication of research. Preprints reside on preprint servers which are online repositories, which usually cover a set of subject domains and allow for dissemination, laying claim to an idea, and help collect feedback prior to submission. In total, we have 1.8M preprint records in Scopus (as of June 2023) from the following seven preprint servers:

Preprints allow authors to showcase their research, making a paper discoverable earlier in the publication process, and are an avenue for finding new research collaborators. Preprints differ from Articles-in-Press in that preprints are not peer-reviewed and have not been accepted for publication in a journal.
