Two prestigious Australian institutes, the University of New South Wales and Monash University, have chosen the Scopus database.

‘We are pleased that we can now include Scopus in our offering. Its unrivaled content coverage will allow our administrators, faculty, and students to search and evaluate global as well as local peer-reviewed journals from Australia and New Zealand,’ said Alison Neil, manager for vendor services & finance at the University of New South Wales,

‘Scopus will enable researchers to demonstrate the impact of their own publications by identifying citations to their work in the 15,000 titles indexed in Scopus. Such quantitative data is of growing importance due to the government's Research Quality Framework and the emphasis it places on such indicators when assessing the quality and impact of research,’ added Suzanne Clark, director of the Monash University Library Information Resources Division.
