Two free workshops on Oct. 17 will teach faculty, students, and community researchers to use advanced features of Scopus. The powerful citation and abstracting tool can help you:
- Manage your author profile and find profiles of colleagues;
- Use citation tracking features to see how many times a work has been cited and where, and to rank searches by citation frequency;
- View your h-index;
- Create visual displays of publication patterns;
- Use export and alert features;
- Analyze and compare journals for publication; and
- Integrate ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) and Mendeley citation manager.
Trainers from Scopus will lead the workshops. Participation requires advance registration.
Scopus will provide light refreshments and sponsor a drawing at the end of each session for prizes that include iPod Shuffles, desk clocks, and other items. You must be present to win. (UNC Library staff are not eligible for prizes.)
Scopus provides coverage of 20,500 peer-reviewed journal and conference literature titles in scientific, technical, medical, social sciences, and arts and humanities disciplines. Entries link to full-text when available from the UNC Libraries. Researchers can also extend searches to include a curated index of more than 375 scientific web pages and 24 million patents.
