A representative from Elsevier Publishing will be on the UND campus on March 22 to demonstrate how to use Scopus. The UND Libraries provide access to the Scopus bibliographic database to all UND faculty, staff, and students. The sessions are open to anyone interested in learning how to use Scopus.

Scopus is the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with tools to track, analyze, and visualize research. Quick, easy and comprehensive, Scopus provides superior support of the literature research process. Scopus can help you:

  • Find out who is citing you, and how many citations an article or an author has received.
  • Analyze citations for a particular journal issue, volume or year.
  • Use this information to complete grant or other applications quickly and easily.
  • Use the refine results overview to quickly see the main journals, disciplines and authors that publish in your area of interest.
  • Uncover important and relevant articles that you may otherwise miss.
  • Check out the work and citations of other authors.
  • Click on the cited by and reference links to track research trends and make connections. You can do this within or across disciplines you are interested in.

Registration is not required for any of these sessions. There will be two sessions held: an advanced session for those who have used Scopus before, and a basic session for those who never have used Scopus, or simply need a refresher on how to search in Scopus.
