Trials of New Resources

Scopus and Web of Science Database Trial March 17-April 30

The Creighton University Libraries are conducting a trial through April 30 to compare the Scopus and Web of Science databases.

Both are bibliographic databases offering primary indexing, citation indexing and tracking, measures of the academic impact of journals, and the ability to profile the work of individual authors.

Publisher representatives will present overviews of their respective databases in the Health Sciences Library Thune Seminar Room:

  • Scopus: Monday, March 20, at 10 a.m., noon (lunch provided), and 2 p.m.
  • Web of Science: Monday, March 27, at 10 a.m., noon (lunch provided), and 2 p.m.

More detail about the trial, with links to relevant articles comparing and evaluating the databases, and an evaluation survey, will be available here.

Faculty evaluation of both products is vital to this decision. Please attend the overview sessions, explore both databases, and submit a survey.
