It’s official! Cornell students, researchers and staff now have access to a powerful information tool in science: Scopus, a large abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature such as scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.
Scopus is somewhat comparable to Web of Science; whereas the latter has deep historical indexing coverage (mostly through Biosis), Scopus has very wide coverage in its number and variety of materials indexed as well as its broad international scope. It also provides excellent data on the publishing output of faculty and their respective organizations.
Give Scopus a try. And for any questions about how to best make this tool work for you, just stop by the Mann Library reference desk in the Mann Library atrium, or book a one-on-one consultation session, or contact a librarian via our 24/7 Ask a Librarian service. We’re here to help!
