SCOPUS now available + training

Information Services now has a subscription to SCOPUS, one of the largest abstract and citation databases of research literature, including over 16,000 peer-reviewed journals as well as details of conference proceedings, trade publications, book series and patents.

Coverage includes the scientific, technical, medical and social sciences literature.

SCOPUS also provides tools to track and analyse research, of particular importance for the proposed requirements of the REF. The h-index within SCOPUS provides details of the most highly cited articles and authors and the citation tracker allows you to see research trends.

SCOPUS is now available via the eLibrary Gateway and the promotional site provides links to further information and tutorials.

A training event to introduce you to the database has been arranged for University of Nottingham staff and students on 27th May, 11-12, Room C15 Pope Building.
For room requirements, please could you email: if you are planning on attending the event.

Further help and support will also be available from your subject librarian.
