The Scopus Content Selection and Advisory Board (CSAB) is an international group of scientists, researchers and librarians who represent the major scientific disciplines. Year round, the board members are responsible for reviewing all titles that are suggested to Scopus.

The CSAB is comprised of 17 Subject Chairs, each representing a specific subject field. The Board works with the Scopus team to understand how Scopus is used, what content is relevant for users and what enhancements should be made.

The recommendations of the CSAB directly influence the overall direction of Scopus and the prioritization of new content requests to ensure that Scopus content stays international and relevant.

Conflict of interest statement of the Scopus CSAB:

In making their decisions about approving journals for inclusion in Scopus, the members of the CSAB avoid conflicts of interest such as those that may derive from their own involvement with other journals. In such cases, the CSAB member will ensure that they take no part in decisions about journals for which they might have a conflict of interest.
