Elsevier has announced the launch of a Japanese user interface to Scopus. The interface provides Japanese users with the ability to find their way through the product in their local language.

Japanese users are now able to find the research information they are looking for more efficiently – expanding beyond Scopus’ basic search functionalities to using more advanced features such as personalisation and alerts.

As additional support, all in-product help files have been translated into Japanese to further increase product understanding, helping Japanese librarians in their teaching and usage of Scopus.

'With a wide range of global content coverage and functionality, Scopus has become one of the most popular abstract and citation databases amongst researchers,' said Cameron Ross, head of product management for Scopus and Engineering Village at Elsevier. 'We are delighted to be able to offer the Japanese user interface to further meet the needs of our Japanese customers and users.'

'This local-language interface will help Japanese users accelerate the speed of their research, conduct analyses, determine their research strategy, provide trainings in a more efficient and effective way and gain information critical to develop their academic career,' said Tetsu Ikeda, director of science and technology at Elsevier Japan.
