Introduction to Scopus

Introduction to Scopus Online

New to UVic for 2021! Scopus is a large citation and abstract database of research sources, including journals, books, conference proceedings and trade publications.

Scopus provides researchers with a tool to search, discover, analyze subject areas and fields of interest across science, technology, medicine, social science, and arts and humanities, and is similar to Web of Science.

This session is applicable to early, mid, and late career researchers as well as individuals with an interest in research impact analysis.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain that Scopus is multidisciplinary database 
  • Conduct a basic search in Scopus
    • Document search
    • Author profile search
    • Institutional search
    • Source search
  • Explore advanced search functions
  • Understand how Scopus can benefit one’s research activities

Participants may explore additional optional activities around managing your author profile, setting up alerts, and identifying top journals and collaborators.
