Scopus Database

Do you want to find the citation count of your publication and what journal articles have cited it? Do you know how to get a citation analysis report for you or your department? Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database, produced by Elsevier and brought to you by the Rutgers University Libraries allows you to find such information.

Scopus covers peer-reviewed scholarly literature from scientific journals, books and conference proceedings that can be used by researchers to determine the impact of specific authors, articles, and journals. It contains over 55 million records and nearly 22,000 titles, and 5,000 publishers with strong coverage in the physical sciences and health sciences, followed by the life sciences, the social sciences and humanities.

Like Web of Science, Scopus provides citation analysis reports and journal ranking statistics. The citation analysis report includes an h-index and h-graph in addition to other information. Scopus is in progress of updating pre-1996 cited references going back to 1970. The h-index of a particular author might increase over time. Scopus also features a journal comparison tool that searches for and chooses up to 10 journals to analyze and compare. Users can also set up a citation alert for a journal article.
