KU Libraries seek feedback on database trial

Monday, July 10, 2017

The University of Kansas Libraries are participating in a trial of the database, Scopus, which is considered to be the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, including scientific journals, books, and conference proceedings. Scopus delivers a comprehensive overview of the world’s research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities.

You can access the trial at lib.ku.edu/new-database-trials. Access to the trial ends on August 3, 2017.

This is an important trial and the KU Libraries seeks your feedback with the consideration that Scopus could be an alternative to our subscription to Web of Science. Please take time to contact Lea Currie, lcurrie@ku.edu, and tell us what you think about Scopus and Web of Science.
