Scopus Adds More Preprint Research Abstracts

Scopus (www.info.scopus.com), the abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature from Elsevier (www.elsevier.com), announced that it has added "Articles-in-Press" (AiP), abstracts of accepted research papers published prior to being printed, from journals produced by Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers and Nature Publishing Group (NPG). In the fall, AiPs from BioMed Central and IEEE will also be available. Scopus previously offered access to AiPs from Elsevier and Springer that included 2,500 titles. This number will now rise to approximately 3,000.

Scopus AiP abstracts are citable and precede the final published, printed version by up to 4 months, significantly accelerating the knowledge discovery process for researchers. Researchers will gain access to the full text by linking from Scopus to the publishers’ digital library. This early access is designed to provide greater connectivity to the current state of research in a range of fields, as well as a more timely method for evaluating the output of authors and institutions. Since AiPs are posted online as either accepted manuscripts or online publications (according to each publisher’s release policy), they may still be subject to changes and/or corrections by the author or publisher. Scopus clearly labels AiPs as such so researchers are aware that an updated abstract will be made available once the papers are in print.
