Is Scopus important to your work? Tell UC about it!

July 7th, 2014

Scopus User Survey

All ten UC campuses have access to Elsevier’s Scopus database for the 2014 calendar year. Scopus is a citation and abstracting database that covers a broad universe of peer reviewed journal and conference literature, with links to Fulltext – when available – through the library. Covering scientific, technical, medical, social science, and arts and humanities disciplines, Scopus indexes nearly 21,000 journals and more than 340 book series from more than 5,000 international publishers.

Scopus allows researchers to perform citation searches to see how many times a work has been cited, by whom, and to rank searches by times cited, from 1996 to the present. Scopus also offers tools to track, analyze, and visualize research, as well as a capability to crosssearch more than 25 million patents.

UC is providing an initial subscription; however, to continue the subscription, the UC Libraries Collection Licensing Subgroup (CLS) needs to hear from the community about whether Scopus is important to UC research. We would like to add many voice to the conversation about whether Scopus is a useful and necessary research and teaching tool.  This link to a very short (i.e., five minute) UC Scopus User survey can be found in the top right corner of every Scopus web page or click here.

June 19th, 2014

Next in the Data Wednesdays Series:

The “what’s”, “why’s” and “how’s” of Electronic Lab Notebooks

Your data are probably stored as digital files, while the information about your experiment is in your paper notebook. Have you wondered what it would be like to have everything stored together in an Electronic Lab Notebook? Have you wanted to try one or several out but did not have time?
