Scopus Adds 600 Titles at No Extra Charge

Scopus, the abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and web sources, announced that it will add 600 titles to its database of 15,000 peer-reviewed journals. To ensure it covers all information deemed relevant to scientific researchers, Scopus established a content strategy that puts the research community’s voice at its core. Users are invited to submit titles for inclusion (, which are then evaluated by librarians and researchers represented in the independent Content Selection & Advisory Board (CSAB). More than 1,700 titles were suggested by librarians and researchers, and, after extensive evaluation of all titles by the CSAB, 600 titles were selected (35% of the suggested titles) to be added to Scopus in the course of the next year. These additional titles will become available at no extra cost.

Despite the broad selection of suggested titles, there is a constant focus on content from emerging countries and social sciences. Almost 20% of the new titles originate from Central & South America reflecting the growing importance of this region’s scientific output. In social sciences, 200 new titles will be added to the already extensive coverage of 2,800 titles. For an overview of all new titles, visit
