Take the path from ideas to successful product development

By providing an unmatched breadth of multidisciplinary research – including books, journals, conference proceedings and patents – Scopus gives R&D teams the right starting point to generate new product development opportunities based on scientifically validated breakthrough technologies.

By gathering insights on leading experts in a research domain and benchmarking technology trends, companies can de-risk the R&D process by removing false leads and ultimately increase the speed to market for new products.

How we help
With the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, including tools to track, analyze and visualize research, Scopus enables researchers and engineers to:

  • Spot trends and monitor global research and emerging market research output
  • Get quickly up to speed on research output growth in focused topics
  • Find the right experts from affiliations and researchers to get insights into experimental results
  • Benchmark research against competitors and validate opportunities for NPD growth
