Scopus Replacing Web of Science on Aug. 31
The Library’s subscription to Web of Science will end on Aug. 31, 2019, with Scopus as a replacement.
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, including journals, books, and conference proceedings. Scopus also provides cited reference searching.
- Scopus covers 98 percent of the journal titles covered by Web of Science, so the loss of content will be extremely minimal
- Scopus covers books, monographs, and conference proceedings that we do not currently have through Web of Science
- The switch from Web of Science to Scopus will save a significant amount of money
- Scopus provides an API free of charge which can be leveraged by the Research Office and/or OPIR in their efforts to track research outputs and faculty activity (Clarivate charges extra money for the Web of Science API)
