Library Offers Scopus Database Trial

February 19th, 2010 by Keir Reavie

The University of California Libraries has trial access to the Scopus database through December 31, 2010. The library would like to get your feedback on using Scopus, to evaluate the need for this type of resource by faculty, students, and staff.

Scopus provides tools that enable researchers to track citations and follow research trends, and view information on people and institutions doing research related to their own, both here at Davis and around the world. Scopus can be used to develop profiles of research output at universities, institutions, colleges, schools, and departments, for specific years and over time.

Scopus indexes abstracts and provides citation analysis for over 16,500 peer-reviewed journals from more than 5,000 international publishers. It also indexes 350 book series, over 3 million conference papers, 23 million patents issued worldwide, 600 trade publications, and millions of selected web pages. Scopus covers all disciplines.

Please take some time to search Scopus and let us know what you think about it. We are very interested in your feedback, particularly if you also search Web of Science to track citations and follow research trends.

After using Scopus, please provide us with feedback using the library’s online survey.

If you have any questions or would like additional help using Scopus, please contact the Carlson Health Sciences Library (530-752‑7042) or the Blaisdell Medical Library (916-734‑3529).
