SciVerse Scopus, recently purchased by the Office of the Vice Chancellor For Research and replacing Web of Science, combines a powerful literature search with a suite of publication and research analysis tools. The Scopus Database enables you to quickly obtain the information that you need to improve your research and publication strategies. Trisha Babcock and Jessica Herzog from Elsevier Publishing will present a session on Scopus on Oct. 4 and 5. Register for one of these three sessions. If you don’t know or have a personnel number, you may email csttrain@unmc.edu to register. (Note: students do not have personnel numbers, so must email to register):

  • Tuesday, Oct 4 from 1-3 p.m. – DRC1 1004

  • Citation Tracker to simply find, check and track citations in real-time.
  • Affiliation Identifier to automatically identify and match an organization with all its research output.
  • Journal Analyzer provides a quick insight into journal performance.
