Experts@Syracuse is a powerful new tool that automatically creates Research Profiles for those who have available Scopus publication data.  During our initial implementation of this tool, researchers or scholars from the schools, colleges, and departments that most frequently publish in Scopus journals (i.e. biological, medical, physical, social, and engineering sciences) will be granted log-in access to Experts@Syracuse allowing them to enter additional content to their profile. In addition to the ability to customize their profile, they will have access to a search engine that will identify funding opportunities specifically geared toward their area of expertise. Use the ‘Log into Pure’ at the bottom of the Experts@Syracuse homepage.
