Scopus, one year on.

Amanda Spiteri, Marketing Director of Elsevier’s bibliographic databases gave me a run down on the four most recent key additions to Scopus. Scopus was launched at Online last year and is now claimed to be the world’s largest abstract and citation database of research information – 14,000 titles.

The new features include chemical structure search capability across the entire file, full integration of CSA’s RefWorks, a new advisory board comprising 20 leading scientists and 10 librarians, and links added to full text articles in the JSTOR archive.

Spiteri tipped that a significant enhancement is due to be announced at ALA in January. While no specifics were given, the development will relate to the analysis of Scopus search results.
