Scopus on trial through September 30, 2016

scopus_logo_r

 

The Meriam Library has been given trial access to Scopus. Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize scholarly research. With Scopus, you can see who is citing your articles, retrieve metrics on journals, and much more.

To learn more about Scopus, the Meriam Library will be hosting a Brown Bag Scopus demo on September 15, 2016 from noon to 1:00 in Rm. 226 in the Library. You may also find help resources for Scopus here.

  1. Can’t make the brown bag. Extremely interested in the access. Our accrediting body, AACSB, is asking for specific impact metrics. Something like Scopus would really help on that front. Right now we are just going to google scholar and using the cite #.

    1. Thanks for the comment. We know that the faculty and administration are interested in impact metrics (and how to identify reputable, as well as predatory, journals) so the Library will be offering similar opportunities in the future. Impact metric databases such as Scopus and Web of Science are very expensive, but we are investigating if we can acquire these tools that are so important to the work of the academic enterprise. — Patrick Newell, Library Dean
