Learn to use Scopus: A powerful online tool through K-State Libraries
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:
- link to full-text articles and other library resources
- use an author identifier to automatically match an author's published research, including the h-index (http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus/scopus-in-detail/tools/authoridentifier)
- find, check and track citations in real-time via a citation tracker tool (http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus/scopus-in-detail/tools2)
- identify and match an organization with all its research output using an affiliation identifier tool (http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus/scopus-in-detail/tools/affiliationidentifier)
- get quick insight into specific journal performance using a journal analyzer (http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus/scopus-in-detail/tools/journalanalyzer)
- download and organize multiple full-text articles simultaneously
- export data via bibliographic managers such as RefWorks
- receive a variety of alerts and feeds to help you stay current in your field (http://www.info.sciverse.com/scopus/scopus-in-detail/tools/feeds)
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 firstname.lastname@example.org giving your name, title, department and which session you would like to attend.
We hope to see you at one of the training sessions.
