Scopus to cease support of Internet Explorer 8

Please be aware that effective from the 1st October 2015, Scopus will no longer support Internet Explorer 8 (IE8).

Why are Elsevier ceasing support of IE8?

This is following Microsoft’s directive to focus support on newer, officially-supported IE browser versions. Microsoft announced in 2014 it would only support the most recent IE browser version with technical support and security updates. 

You are strongly advised to also follow Microsoft’s directive by updating to more recent versions of IE or by using other supported browsers on your personal laptop. University networked PCs support IE9 which will allow you to access Scopus as usual via the portal.  

Elsevier will discontinue support a few months ahead of Microsoft’s official deadline of January 2016 in order to get an earlier start on some major projects. By removing IE8 from their support list, Elsevier will be able to provide the following future enhancements:

  • Remove current IE8 security issues
  • Enhance existing security measures across all browsers
  • Add support for new browser technologies
  • Add responsive design to aid use of Scopus across devices
  • Improve accessibility to better enable access to people with diverse abilities

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Elsevier at:  - Europe

Note: Compatibility mode in IE9 or higher reverts the browser back to IE7 or IE8 behaviour. If you experience issues accessing Scopus using IE9 or higher, please disable the compatibility view mode in your IE browser.
