Reviewing affiliation details

This tutorial demonstrates features available on the Affiliations details page.

The Affiliations details page provides information about affiliations that have more than one document matched to them in Scopus.

The affiliation details page provides an address, name variants, and the affiliation ID.

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

This feature is useful for distinguishing between institutions or departments that have the same name such as the Department of Physics, or when the same department has been cited differently.

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

For an advanced search, you can search using an affiliation ID with the code:

AF-ID (eight-digit ID number)
