In mid-2013 Scopus launched the Books Expansion Project to increase the Arts and Humanities content in Scopus and the project has been steadily moving along. To date, you can see more than 40,000 books in Scopus!
How is the program going? Books from more than 30 major publishers such as Springer, Wiley-Blackwell, Elsevier, Brill, Walter de Gruyter, Princeton University Press, Palgrave Macmillan and Project Muse have already been selected and are being processed. More than 40,000 books have now been loaded in Scopus and we expect to have at least 65,000 books in Scopus by the end of this year.
Although books from all subject fields are considered for the project, the focus is on Social Sciences and Arts & Humanities and at least 25% of the books currently in Scopus are in these subject fields. Book items in Scopus also get cited, at present – with more than 5,600 citations – the highest cited book in Scopus is Theory of games and economic behaviorby von Neuman and Morgenstern
