Training Sessions for Scopus, SDSU’s New Research Database

Web of Science is going away December 22.  Scopus will take its place, offering more research coverage across disciplines, with more analytical tools, in a better search interface.  With a global research focus, Scopus allows you to search with confidence across multiple disciplines: Life Sciences, Health Sciences, Physical Sciences, Technology, Social Sciences, Arts, and Humanities.
