Bibliometric analysis is becoming an increasingly important way to measure and assess the research impact of individuals, groups of individuals or institutions. Scopus is one of the tools you can use to gather and produce bibliometric data.
Scopus is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.
Delivering a comprehensive overview of the world's research output in the fields of science, technology, medicine, social sciences, and arts and humanities, Scopus features smart tools to track, analyse and visualise research.
