Seton Hall University library has recently begun a trial of SciVerse Scopus. The trial will run until September 30th. During this time we invite you to try Scopus. We welcome your feedback as this will help us in our decision-making process.
SciVerse Scopus offers an easy-to-use platform with sophisticated tools to help track, analyze and evaluate research publications. Scopus covers more than 18,500 titles from more than 5,000 international publishers across the sciences, technology, medicine, social sciences and arts & humanities. Use Scopus to:
- See how many articles you or our institute have published for a given time period, how many citations each has received and which ones are the most highly cited;
- Provide publication and citation statistics for promotion and tenure;
- Evaluate the performance of journals for the publication of research.
For a more complete overview please visit the SciVerse Scopus Info Site which contains detailed information about content coverage as well as additional support resources. Please let us know what you think before the trial ends. [Lisa.Rose-Wiles@shu.edu]
There will be a Scopus demonstration and training session on September 15th at 10.30 – 12.30 (lunch included)
