Scopus, a broad view of global research

Share this on social media:

Scopus delivers a comprehensive overview of the world's research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities. As the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature including scientific journals, books and conference proceedings, Scopus has intuitive tools that allow you to track, analyse and visualise research.

Whether you want to analyse an author or institution, paper or journal, Scopus has tools and metrics to give you a clear overview of research and research trends. For articles, the Article-level Metrics Module lets you see not only where a paper is cited, but what social and scholarly attention it has received. For journals, the free Journal Pages let you see key journal metrics, including CiteScore, SNIP and SJR; and via Compare Journals you have the ability to benchmark further. For authors and institutions, algorithmically created Profile Pages give you a quick overview of a researcher or university.

Increasingly, Scopus data is chosen to support rankings, assessments and key reports. Scopus data is used for university rankings, such as the QS World University Rankings, Times Higher Education World University Rankings and the Financial Times MBA Rankings. Scopus data fuels national assessments in the UK and Australia, and is used in key reports such as the NSF Science and Engineering Indicators (US), Business Innovation and Skills report (UK), and more.

As research becomes increasingly global, interdisciplinary and collaborative, you can make sure that critical research from around the world is not missed when you choose Scopus.
