Scopus

Scopus Database (from Elsevier)

Connect to the Scopus database platform  

What are the latest research areas? Who are the leading experts? Are you uncovering the full breadth of cutting-edge research?

Scopus has the comprehensive scientific data and literature, and analytical tools to keep you up to date. Scopus combines a comprehensive, curated abstract and citation database with enriched data and linked scholarly content. Scopus records include a digital object identifier (DOI) that seamlessly link the reader out to the full-text of the papers indexed. Quickly find relevant and trusted research, identify experts, and access reliable data, metrics and analytical tools to support confident decisions around research strategy. Records in Scopus include links to both earlier cited, and subsequent citing papers, as well as other related research with keywords and key phrases in common. 

The ability to find scientific research is just as important as its quality. Scopus fosters the easy discovery of research and enables researchers to claim the papers they author, ensuring they are properly credited for their published work. The platform has the ability to save favourite searches and to set search alert reminders for matching new content as these latest, breaking research papers enter the Scopus database.
