The scopus parser function takes two parameters, in the form of {{#scopus:doi=DOI|parameter=PARAMETER}}.

Where doi is required to identify the document and "parameter" is the name of the parameter that should be displayed. The full list of parameters is available here.


  • This example displays the citation count of a document:

{{#scopus:doi=10.1103/PhysRevA.20.1521|parameter=citedby-count}} → 519
