New Database: Scopus

We are excited to announce that Reed Library has replaced Web of Science with Scopus

As of January 1, 2021, the Library‚Äôs subscription to Web of Science has ended and Scopus is our new replacement for comprehensive literature searching across disciplines and citation tracing. 

What is Scopus?

  • Scopus is a database for abstracts and citations of journal articles, books, and more.
  • You can search Scopus by title, author, institution, funder, and more.
  • Like Web of Science, Scopus has a cited reference search.
  • Coverage includes the Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities. 
  • There is a Scopus LibGuide that details searching, alerts, and other features.

Students, if you have been using Web of Science for an assignment or your thesis, contact your subject librarian if you need help transitioning to Scopus.

Faculty, if you, your class, or lab would like more training on Scopus please let your subject librarian know. We are also happy to help adjust assignments that used Web of Science previously and can help with new assignments as well.
