Articles that have been published in the Scopus journal, which means that the journal has been indexed by Scopus, will have a Scopus ID number. You can visit http://scopus.com/ to search for journals and http://scopus.com/ to view the SJR (Scimago Journal & Country Rank) ranking of your destination journal.There are several reasons why the article has been published but does not appear on Scopus. let’s see

1. Your article is not indexed by Scopus

The database in Scopus takes time to be reloaded, therefore articles published in Scopus journals will not appear in Scopus immediately. The time needed to wait for indexed articles is around 1-2 months after the article is published.

2. Unindexed Destination Journal by Scopus

The second reason is the possibility the journal published your article has not been indexed by Scopus. Even though the journal name appears in the SJR, double-check that your journal contains information indicating that the coverage is still ongoing.
