The Dalhousie Libraries now subscribe to Scopus, a large abstract and citation database of journals, books, and conference proceedings with strong Science, Technology, Engineering, and Medical content. Humanities and Social Science content is also indexed in Scopus. Faculty members and students in the Faculty of Agriculture will be familiar with this database from before the merger. Halifax-based university community members may have used Scopus during a 2011-2012 trial.
Scopus offers a wide range of search, discover, and analytics tools. In particular, Scopus provides tools to assist researchers in tracking various impact factors. If you’d like to get started using Scopus, a short video overview of the main functions is available.
Scopus is available on and off campus if you have a valid Dalhousie Net Id and password.
