Scopus Launches PatentCites and WebCites

Elsevier ( announced the launch of two new features for Scopus (, the abstract and citation database of research information and Web sources. PatentCites, released to customers on Sept. 22, allows users to track how primary research is practically applied in patents. WebCites, which will be launched shortly, is the first step toward enabling Scopus users to track the influence of peer-reviewed research on Web literature.

Scopus PatentCites clearly identifies citations from patent sources that cite Scopus articles on the Abstract and References page. As with article citation counts, PatentCites links directly to the source items. This feature enables users to immediately see the relationship of primary research to its practical application in patents. It's designed to be of particular value to those working in disciplines such as medicine, engineering, chemistry, agriculture, or other applied sciences. Among the key growing number of patent sources covered and updated daily are the U.S. Patent Office, the European Patent Office, and the World Intellectual Property Organization.

In the forthcoming release of WebCites, users will be able to view citations to articles in Scopus from a growing number of carefully selected scientific Web sources, such as Institutional Repositories and Thesis and Dissertation databases. Users will be able to gain additional insights into the influence of specific articles and place article citation numbers from outside the peer-reviewed realm into perspective. Like PatentCites, WebCites will be presented clearly in a separate display, allowing the user to link directly to the relevant source items with just one click.
