What does it cover?

Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. Delivering a comprehensive overview of the world's research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research.

Effective search tools in Scopus help you to quickly identify the right results from over 57 million records. Search in the following ways: 

  • Document search: Search directly from the homepage and use detailed search options to ensure you find the document(s) you want
  • Author search: Search for a specific author by name or by ORCID (Open Research and Contributor Identifier) ID
  • Affiliation search: Identify and assess an affiliation’s scholarly output, collaborating institutions and top authors.
  • Advanced search: Narrow the scope of your search using field codes, proximity operators and/or Boolean operators.
  • Refine results: Scopus makes it easy to refine your results list to specific categories of documents.
  • Language interface: The Scopus interface is available in Chinese and Japanese. Content is not localized, but you can switch the interface to one of these language options (and switch back to English, the default language) at the bottom of any Scopus page.
