ConfigurationΒΆ

Version 0.6 introduced a config file in in ~/.scopus/. This config file will gradually be extended to steer scopus to a greater extend but is currently only used for one purpose: To store credentials for the token-based authentication. If you want to stick to the more common IP address based authentication, do not create the config file.

If you have an InstToken and an API Key, please create a file ~/.scopus/config. Edit it to look like follows:

[Authentication]
InstToken = <Your InstToken goes here>
APIKey = <Your API Key goes here>

Folder ~/ refers to your private home directory or home path. On many Windows machines this is usually C:Document and Settings<Your User Name>. In there you find a hidden folder .scopus, which is also the directory where scopus caches downloaded files.
