Scopus has announced the launch of two new features. The first, PatentCites, allows users to track how primary research is practically applied in patents. The second, WebCites, is expected to help Scopus users to track the influence of peer-reviewed research on web literature.

Scopus PatentCites identifies citations from patent sources that cite Scopus articles on the abstract and references page. Like article citation counts, PatentCites is said to link directly to the source items. Among the patent sources covered and updated daily are the US Patent Office, European Patent Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization.

WebCites will allow users to view citations to articles in Scopus from scientific web sources, such as institutional repositories and thesis and dissertation databases, as well as other carefully selected web sources.
