Scopus Announces First-of-its-Kind Customized Institutional Resources and Digital Archive Searches

Scopus(R), the world's largest abstract and citation database of research information and quality web sources, today announced that it is the first and only database of its kind to provide a fully customizable feature to its customers that enables users to search within selected repositories or subject specific digital archives within the Scopus interface. This new feature in Scopus, Selected Sources, allows customers to choose from a list of institutional resources and special subject collections indexed by Scirus to be made individually searchable in a separate tab; in effect highlighting the best scientific information from the web to their users.

Furthermore, for the first time, librarians can request for their own institutes' repositories and digital archive to be indexed and made searchable through the Scopus interface.

Now that these Selected Sources can be selected and searched separately by universities, departments, government agencies and corporations can enhance traditional literature searching by providing easy access to non-published intellectual output such as theses, lecture notes, presentations, manuscripts and prepress papers. Additionally it provides exposure of the research carried out at institutes that offer their repositories online and it bridges the gap between traditional and new search environments.

"Scopus now provides easy access to our institution's repository by internal and external parties, generating added global exposure of the research our staff is conducting," said Hubert Krekels, Repository Manager, Wageningen University and Research Centre. "In addition, the Selected Sources feature will allow us to provide a new, highly valuable service to our researchers by empowering our departments with the ability to customize an area of Scopus and dedicate it to their area of interest."

"Users demand the ability to conduct both comprehensive and targeted research, which is why it is so important to make scientific information accessible regardless of where it is stored. The information they need may be in their own library or another, it may be published within a journal or on the Web or even unpublished. We are striving to provide a simple way for researchers to access relevant scientific literature by removing barriers between these different information sources." said Jaco Zijlstra Scopus Director "Above all, it brings all the resources together within one interface while keeping them separate through the use of tabs, simplifying the research work flow significantly."

Librarians can choose from over 19 institutional repositories indexed by Elsevier's Scirus including MIT OpenCourseWare, the University of Toronto's T-Space, the Caltech collection of open digital archives and other gray literature sources such as NASA. The Selected Sources feature is available to all subscribers and can be quickly and easily customized by contacting Scopus' E-Helpdesk.

Customers can also request their repositories to be indexed by Scirus for free.
