Scopus - Cited References Expansion Project


Scopus is one of the largest abstract and indexing databases of peer-reviewed research.
Full access to Scopus is available via http://www.library.nuigalway.ie/
Scopus is set to become even more comprehensive with the Scopus Cited References Expansion project.
Looking back in time, for the future.

Elsevier will re-index 8 million articles - dating back to 1970 - in order to add cited references for pre-1996 content; this improvement will first become evident in Scopus in the fourth quarter of 2014 and finish in 2016.
Covering all major publishers and scientific fields of study, the project will increase the depth of Scopus' scholarly content while enhancing your ability to use Scopus for long-term evaluation and trend analysis. Moreover, author profiles and h-index counts of researchers who published articles prior to 1996 will be more complete.

To stay up-to-date about the program progress and other Scopus news visit Scopus' blog and follow Scopus on Twitter @Scopus.
