Why are we moving to Scopus?
By making this change to Scopus, we will achieve substantial annual cost savings, while retaining a comparable database that is used by more than 5,000 academic, government, and corporate institutions, including many of our liberal arts college peers.
What is Scopus?
Like Web of Knowledge, Scopus is a curated abstract database that links researchers to scholarly literature across a wide variety of disciplines.
As a citation database, Scopus also provides tools for users to discover and analyze the connections between research. Researchers can find related documents by shared references, authors, and keywords; identify subject experts; track citations over time for a set of authors or documents; and assess trends in search results.
