Elsevierís Scopus Now Accessible Within EBSCO Discovery Service

EBSCO Publishing and Elsevier have agreed to allow mutual customers to access Scopus within EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Scopus is a bibliographic, abstract-and-citation database that Elsevier providesr. The agreement enables researchers at institutions that subscribe to both Scopus and EDS to conduct their search via the single search box of EBSCO Discovery Service, access the extensive content in Scopus within the results, and be able to link to the full record. This agreement will benefit mutual customers by providing increased exposure to scientific, technical, medical, and social sciences content.

“Expanding the discoverability of Scopus content for researchers is one of our most important goals,” commented Cameron Ross, head of product management for Scopus. “EBSCO Discovery Service will let Scopus subscribers use their library’s standard search interface to widen their search to quickly find information. Researchers at institutions that subscribe to both will now have access to citation data as well as other in-depth analytical tools that will enable them to achieve better research outcomes.”

The Scopus database includes the abstracts and references of 19,500 peer-reviewed journals from more than 5,000 international publishers. Scopus offers scholars a comprehensive resource to support their research needs in the scientific, technical, medical, and social sciences fields, as well as in the arts and humanities.

Elsevier is part of a growing list of publishers and other content partners that are taking part in EDS to bring more visibility to their content. The EDS Base Index represents content from about 20,000 providers (and growing), which accounts for more than 350,000 publications from top publishers and information providers. However, because EDS is a custom solution, the complete index to materials for any given customer may be expanded greatly beyond the coverage referenced for the Base Index.
