This week the first ever #Academic Book Week is happening throughout the UK and beyond. Academic Book Week is a series of events, competitions, promotions and social media activity, all taking place from November 9-16, 2015.
Why does Scopus care about books? Increased coverage of Scopus book content provides researchers, especially those working in book-based disciplines, a broader frame of reference to complement what is published in primary research journals. It also allows for bibliometric and citation analysis of that content.
When we started the Book Title Expansion Project, we originally aimed to add 75,000 new books – a number that was already reached in February this year. By the end of this year Scopus will have indexed 120,000 book titles! And when the project formally ends this year, we will continue to invest in books content in order to index an additional 20,000 titles per year.
