New Library Database: SCOPUS

The Library now has a subscription to SCOPUS which is the world’s largest bibliographic and citation database. It covers nearly 20,000 academic journals from a wide range of subjects and dates from 1996 to the present. SCOPUS will also be the source of the citation data which will be used by some of the Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment panels.

SCOPUS can be accessed, both on and off campus, via QCat.  As well as carrying out literature searches, you can set up current awareness alerts, view citation counts, determine your h-index and assess the quality of journal titles.  SCOPUS is part of the SciVerse suite of resources which is produced by Elsevier and includes the ScienceDirect electronic journals service.

Please contact your Subject Librarian if you have any questions.
