My RI- Measuring your Research Impact. The main bibliometric tools


Scopus is a subscription based service peoduced by Elsevier. It is available via their SciVerse platform and is seen as the main rival to Web of Science. Scopus currently indexes over 18,000 titles across all disciplines. It is extremely expensive and not widely available in Scottish Universities. More detailed information, including a list of titles indexed is available from the publisher.

The coverage of the social sciences is broader than WOS and Scopus also includes some conference proceedings. At present citation data is only available for articles published from 1996 onwards.
