Scopus Review

CSU Stanislaus is reviewing Scopus in 2022 as a planned replacement for the Web of Science Core citation / research database.

  • The Scopus database of leading peer-reviewed journals is larger (although still selective) than the Web of Science Core Collection available to CSU Stanislaus.
  • Scopus covers 1970 - present (our Web of Science core only covers 2004 - present)
