August 2013 Updates to Scopus: Enhancements to Books & ISSN Search Alerts

on Tue, 08/27/2013 - 13:37
  1. Scopus now makes discovering thousands of book and book chapters even easier. Find <Book or Book Chapter> in the Document Type menu.



    Then, when you open a chapter screen, you will see all of the other chapters within the book listed in a viewing panel on the right-hand side of the page.


     
  2. You asked and we have delivered. You may now set a search alert for an ISSN and receive an email whenever Scopus indexes new documents from that source.
