leave a comment »

Scopus is rated SMART CHOICE by Information World Review NetUser:

USABILITY: 4/5

SITE DESIGN: 4/5

INFORMATON DEPTH: 5/5

Scopus is an immensely useful resource that draws on a vast range of publications. Its search functionality is, for the main part, easy to use and requires no prior knowledge on the part of the user. While the Advanced Search option is a little trickier, it doesn’t take long to get used to, and the level of refinement it offers is worth making the effort. The ability to save searches and to receive updates are excellent time-saving features. All in all, Scopus is an invaluable tool for the serious researcher.
