Scopus surpasses 120,000 indexed book titles!

on Thu, 03/03/2016 - 19:35

Scopus has now surpassed its targeted goal of 120,000 books indexed since the Scopus Book Titles Expansion program was first announced, marking the conclusion of the project (10,000 books will continue to be added annually). Reflecting back on the original goal, this is 45,000 more books than initially planned. Additionally, over 60% of the indexed books fall into the arts and humanities and/or social sciences categories, achieving a key objective to better support the book-based nature of these disciplines.

What defines a book in Scopus? Books are indexed on both a book and a chapter level. Book selection policy is publisher-based, meaning publishers are reviewed based on the relevancy and quality of their complete books list. Once a publisher is accepted, all books from that publisher that fit the scope of the project are indexed in Scopus.
