Scopus to ISI-format
(Scop2ISI.exe at <http://www.leydesdorff.net/software/scop2isi/scop2isi.exe>
This program enables one to read a file which is exported from the Scopus
database in the csv-format. The input file should be named scopus.csv. The
program and the input file should be in the same folder (directory).
The program produces a file isi.txt which contains the information in the
tagged-format of the ISI output. This file can be used as input to most of
my programs. (The file has to be renamed to data.txt for this purpose.) See
for further programs at http://www.leydesdorff.net/indicators/index.htm .
One major difference between the Scopus and ISI output is the use of the
abbreviated journal names in the ISI output. These are used in the cited
references by the ISI, but Scopus uses the full journal names. The program
BibJourn.Exe <http://www.leydesdorff.net/software/bibjourn/index.htm> is
affected by this difference. (HistCiteT hitherto has the same problem.) I
have not yet made a version of this routine for Scopus data. The other
routines should work smoothly like in the case of ISI data.
The current version is in the development phase. Please, feel free to
feedback with suggestions for improvements.
