The Scopus Content Coverage Guide: A complete overview of the content coverage in Scopus and corresponding policies

on Wed, 05/03/2023 - 19:41

Scopus delivers the broadest coverage of any interdisciplinary abstract and citation database. Covering 240 disciplines, researchers, instructors, librarians and students who rely on Scopus are confident that the odds of missing key publications are greatly reduced.

Researchers trust the information and data they discover with Scopus because the content on Scopus comes from over 7,000 publishers that must be reviewed and selected by an independent Content Selection and Advisory Board (CSAB) to be, and continue to be, indexed on Scopus.

The Scopus Content Coverage Guide is a document that is designed to provide readers with a complete overview of all aspects of content coverage in Scopus.
