Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research. Scopus is designed and developed with over 500 users and librarians internationally. Updated daily, it includes the abstracts and references of 15,000 peer-reviewed journals from more than 4,000 international publishers, ensuring broad interdisciplinary coverage. In addition, Scopus offers seamless linking to full-text articles and other library resources and also integrates web and patent searches directly from its clean and simple interface.
Features like the Author Identifier and the Citation Tracker have set an industry-wide benchmark for enhanced searching and citation tracking. Both features have enhanced the users' ability to find who they are looking for and all their corresponding publications. Also included is the h-index and its visual aids that help authors, department heads and university administrators to track and interpret their performance. In addition, Scopus also offers PatentCites to track how primary research is practically applied in patents and WebCites to track the influence of peer-reviewed research on web literature and easy to set-up alerts, RSS and HTML feeds to stay-up-to-date on new articles matching the search query.
Scopus is a complete service package, easy to set up and customize, and includes COUNTER-compliant usage reports, an information website, live assistance with e-Helpdesk and a broad spectrum of collateral for each institution with access.
