California Digital Library has purchased a one-year trial to Scopus, a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and more, with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.

Come try it out! No registration required. Use the training room PCs or bring your own laptop.

Scopus contains over 50 million records in all disciplines, with more than half the content originating from outside North America.

  • Indexes over 21,000 journals, conference proceedings, trade publications, and book series in sciences, technology, medicine, arts, humanities, and social sciences
  • Includes over 5.3 million conference papers
  • Includes 100% of the Medline database
  • Has more than 23 million patents from 5 patent offices
  • Includes citations back to 1823
  • Cited references available from 1996 forward

Use the Journal Analyzer tool to compare journals on a variety of parameters:

  • scientific prestige (SJR)
  • citation impact (SNIP)
  • number of times a journal has been cited
  • number of articles published per year
  • percent of articles not cited per year
  • percent of published articles that are reviews

Scopus also integrates with Embase: Records in Embase with citing articles will have a link to open Scopus so one can view the citing articles. Also, Scopus is considered an essential database to search when conducting systematic reviews

UC-wide access to Scopus ends on December 31, 2014; at that time each campus will decide whether or not to subscribe.
