Trial access to Scopus

Posted on August 8th, 2012 by Paul Stainthorp

The Library has access to Scopus on a trial basis, until 6 September 2012.

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed research literature. Scopus contains 47 million records (70% with abstracts) from 19,000 titles, and from more than 5,000 international publishers. Covers scientific, technical, medical and social sciences fields and, more recently, also in the arts and humanities.

You can log in to Scopus via the Portal or Blackboard.

N.B. individual Athens login to Scopus is not yet available, so personalised functions (search alerts; document citation alerts; saved searches) are not currently available to University of Lincoln users.

When you search Scopus, you can check whether an article is available in full text at the University of Lincoln, by clicking on the “Find full text” link underneath each article in the search results.

The University of Lincoln will be using this trial period of access to investigate how bibliometric/citation data from Scopus can be combined with data from the Lincoln Repository to provide services to help with research information management and the REF 2014.

There’s a suite of help guides for Scopus, here.

For more information on Scopus please contact your subject librarian.
