New Journal Database: Scopus

Scopus is an abstract and citation database of research literature and web sources, that is particularly useful to CSU researchers and academics.

While it doesn’t include full-text of articles, it uses SFX functionality to link to CSU full-text holdings. This means that Scopus is a quick and easy way to find peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources; and features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.

Scopus covers subjects like:

  • Life Sciences (agricultural and biological sciences; biochemistry, genetics, and molecular biology; immunology and microbiology; neuroscience; pharmacology, toxicology and pharmaceutics; multidisciplinary).
  • Health Sciences (medicine; dentistry; nursing; veterinary; health professions).
  • Physical Sciences (chemical engineering; chemistry; computer science; earth and planetary science; energy; engineering; environmental science; materials science; mathematics; physics and astronomy).
  • Social Sciences & Humanities (arts and humanities; business, management and accounting; decision sciences; economics, econometrics, and finance; psychology; social sciences).

Features include:

  • Scopus Citation Tracker – to find, check and track citation data year by year and in real-time.
  • Scopus Author Identifier – to distinguish between results from authors with the same name and to capture all results for an author whose name is recorded in different ways.
  • The h-index – a means to evaluate research.
  • Scopus Affiliation Identifier – to automatically identify and match an organization with all its research output.
  • E-mail Alerts, RSS and HTML feeds.
  • Document Download Manager – to easily download and organise multiple full-text articles simultaneously.
