If you have any questions regarding Web of Science and Scopus, please book an appointment or contact us through "Ask your faculty library".
This workshop will focus on how to find information in Web of Science and Scopus about:
- Your own research area and frequency of citations.
- Identify potential collaborators, institutions and impact of their research.
- Identify journals that are most cited within your research area.
- Identify your (or a colleague’s) own publications in an easy way with author identificators, e.g. ORCID and Scopus author id.
Web of Science
Web of Science is an online academic citation index. As a citation index, any cited paper will lead to any other literature. The database contains information about cited articles, author’s h-index, Journal Impact Factor (JIF) and more.
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.
In comparison to Web of Science, Scopus has a bigger scope, but Web of Science is more complete when it comes to citations prior to 1996. Scopus doesn't use the Journal Impact Factor, but rely on other bibliometric tools such as SJR and SNIP.
No fee for faculty members and PhD students.
