Learn to use Scopus: A powerful online tool through K-State Libraries

By Caron Berges

Dear colleagues,

Did you know that you have access to Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, via the libraries’ website? To help you learn how to use this powerful tool, the K-State Libraries and the office of research and sponsored programs are hosting one-hour training sessions at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Dec. 4 and at 9 a.m. on Dec. 5 in Hale Library’s Hemisphere Room.

In addition to knowing how to look up your citation information, you will learn how to:

While sharing many of the same features as the more familiar Web of Science, the two products complement each other with Scopus covering more journals — particularly in the humanities and social sciences — and Web of Science going further back in time.

If you want to attend any of the sessions on Dec. 4 or Dec. 5, please RSVP to orsp@k-state.edu giving your name, title, department and which session you would like to attend.  

We hope to see you at one of the training sessions.

Best regards,
