Message from the Elsevier Scopus Team

“We would like to inform you that per November 3 2016, Scopus will no longer support Internet Explorer 9.

In January 2016 Microsoft announced its official discontinuation of Internet Explorer 8, 9, and 10. For more information please visit Microsoft’s support page.

Scopus is in the process of improving its workflow by updating its user interface to the latest technology, HTML5. Scopus aims to provide the best possible user experience, utilizing the most effective tools and most powerful technology. Moving from older technologies to support new ones enables us to improve the performance of the product and develop a better user experience for all our users. Older browsers like IE 9 do not support HTML5, which is the new industry standard for structuring and presenting content for the web. HTML5 supports mobile devices, doesn’t rely on plug-ins, and provides a faster customer experience.

In order for our users to continue benefitting from Scopus’ new features and functionalities, we would like to recommend upgrading your browser to IE 11 or higher, use Google Chrome, or Firefox browsers.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.”
