Scopus is here!

The University of Iowa Libraries has added a new abstract and citation database to its collection. Scopus is similar to our current database Web of Science (WOS). While it has fewer years of journal coverage than WOS, for more recent years, Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database. It includes peer-reviewed titles from international publishers, Open Access journals, conference proceedings, trade publications, and quality web sources. It’s subject coverage includes: Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Engineering ; Life and Health Sciences ; Social Sciences, Psychology and Economics ; Biological, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.

Scopus is available to students, faculty and staff of the University of Iowa and can be accessed both on and off-campus at:

Scopus features include:

  • Linking to full-text articles and other library resources.
  • Author Identifier to automatically match an author’s published research including the h-index.
  • Citation Tracker to simply find, check and track citations in real-time.
  • Affiliation Identifier to automatically identify and match an organization with all its research output.
  • Journal Analyzer provides a quick insight into journal performance.
  • Alerts, RSS and HTML feeds to stay up-to-date.
  • Document Download Manager to easily download and organize multiple full-text articles simultaneously.
  • Interoperability with SciVerse ScienceDirect, Reaxis and ProQuest’s CSA Illumina.
  • Data export via bibiliographic managers such as RefWorks, EndNote and BibTex.
