Scopus, Elsevier's abstracting and citation database, is being made available to 44 of Brazil’s leading universities and research institutes, thanks to a new deal with the Brazilian Federal Agency for the Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES).

'In signing with Scopus, CAPES fulfils its commitment to make available to Brazil’s scientific and technological communities a powerful tool that provides access to state-of-the-art knowledge from all over the world. Scopus is the largest multidisciplinary database on scientific publications and it substantially increases the number of journals that may be reached and viewed by our scientists,' said CAPES president Jorge Guimarães in a statement at the signing ceremony held at the Brazilian Ministry of Education.
