ProQuest and Scopus Announce Partnership
ProQuest (www.proquest.com) and Elsevier's Scopus (www.info.scopus.com) announced a reciprocal searching and linking partnership that will expand the research capabilities of mutual customers of CSA Illumina and Scopus. This integration will enable users of CSA Illumina to find 4,500 Scopus titles in natural sciences, business, and economics directly integrated in their search results. In turn, Scopus users will be able to view records from selected ProQuest databases in social sciences from the CSA Illumina platform. This reciprocal linking capability is available at no additional charge to customers who have licensed the selected content from both CSA Illumina and Scopus. Mutual customers will receive a notification when the linking agreement is activated at their institution.
CSA Illumina from ProQuest is a digital platform for bibliographic and full-text searching of more than 100 databases covering social sciences. Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of research literature and quality Web sources with smart tools to track, analyze, and visualize research, covering more than 15,000 titles from more than 4,000 international publishers.
Mutual users will be able to cross-search the comprehensive coverage of both products in either single interface without any extra effort. Additional search results will be seamlessly integrated in the results set with a direct link to the original record on the native product and to the full text, if available.
Key bibliographic records from Scopus in natural sciences, business, and economics will be made available on the CSA Illumina platform. In turn, high-quality titles in social sciences on the CSA Illumina platform, such as CSA Sociological Abstracts and Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts, will be made available on Scopus.
Note: ProQuest CSA, the new company formed from the February 2007 merger of ProQuest Information and Learning and CSA, announced that it will now operate under the name ProQuest, a decision guided by customer research. CSA will continue to be used in product names, such as CSA Illumina, CSA Illustrata, and others.
