New Database: Scopus

Pepperdine Libraries now subscribe to Scopus.

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.​ ​Scopus covers over 67 million records for 22​,​794 journal titles, ​34,000 book ​volumes, 8 million conference papers, and 28 million patent records, all in​ ​the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities.

The Scopus Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB), which includes scientists, researchers, and librarians, reviews new titles to be included in Scopus. Visit Elsevier’s Content Policy and Selection page for more details.

In addition to providing tools to search scholarly literature, Scopus offers tools that support discovery and analysis. Users can find related documents, examine the research output of an organization, and analyze journal impact factors.

Scopus can also help users identify the most cited literature or authors in a field, as well as locate collaborators for future research.

You might use Scopus when you are:

  • Discovering topics and articles for literature reviews.
  • Deciding where to publish your work.
  • Wondering which authors have cited your work.
  • Evaluating an author’s work.
  • Exploring coverage of a journal.
  • Tracking the impact of your work.
