Changing Resources: Transitioning from Scopus to Web of Science

The University libraries will be ending their subscription to the Scopus database on December 31, 2021. This decision was made based on usage statistics and cost-per-use metrics.

Web of Science (WoS), the authoritative and continually updated citation database, is comparable to Scopus. WoS allows you to track prior research and monitor current developments, see who is citing your work, and measure the influence of colleagues’ work.

WoS consists of six databases:

  • Web of Science Core Collection (1945-present)
  • BIOSIS Previews (1969-present)
  • KCI-Korean Journal Database (1980-present)
  • MEDLINE® (1950-present)
  • Russian Science Citation Index (2005-present)
  • SciELO (2002-present)

You can also search all six databases at one time.
