Researchers who search and track citations can now expand their reach thanks to new and enhanced tools from the UNC Libraries.
Trainers will be onsite July 31 and Aug. 6 to demonstrate the capabilities of Scopus and new content sets and features of Web of Knowledge Complete. The free sessions include lunch, courtesy of the publishers.
Scopus bills itself as “the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature” in scientific, technical, medical, social sciences, and arts and humanities disciplines.
The Libraries’ new two-year trial allows UNC researchers to perform and rank citation searches; track new citations for their own and others’ publications; and take advantage of the author profile page with an overview of publications, citing references, h-index and other impact metrics.
Scopus has ties to ORCID, the organization that assigns unique identifiers to scholarly researchers to resolve name ambiguity problems, and which allows researchers to identify all work products, including articles, patents, data sets, and blog posts. The session will demonstrate how to add Scopus-indexed publications to your ORCID record.
Web of Knowledge Complete encompasses Web of Science, one of the leading citation databases with expanded citation data back to 1900, and additional content sets: BIOSIS Previews, Current Contents Connect for current awareness, Book Citation Index, Data Citation Index, Conference Proceedings Index, Current Chemical Reactions and Index Chemicus.
