Scopus is Preferred Abstract and Citation Database across Asia


Scopus®, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources with smart tools to track, analyze and visualize research, today announced that in the first quarter of 2007, 18 Asian institutions, including the Universiti Putra Malaysia, chose Scopus as the preferred database for their university library. Scopus was chosen for its unrivaled content coverage that will allow the institution’s administrators, faculty, and students to search and evaluate global as well as local peer-reviewed journals.

Sultan Abdul Samad Library is the central force behind the Universiti Putra Malaysia’s motto ’with knowledge we serve’. “It is with this in mind that Scopus was chosen”, explains Salmah Abdullah, Reference Librarian at Universiti Putra Malaysia. “The database provides our users with the best coverage available for their learning experience. In addition the Author Identifier and Scopus’ citation tracking functionalities help our researchers boost our research funding.”

Scopus is a natural choice for institutes committed to building research information centers of excellence. The product seamlessly integrates into electronic library environments with customizable full text linking options, web based library administration support and its compatibility with leading federated search solutions.

“These 18 Asian institutes will benefit greatly from their investment in Scopus, because the database will help their students and researchers filter and analyze the vast quantities of research available” said Jaco Zijlstra, Scopus Director. “We’re proud to be working with them and are excited to offer them the most comprehensive database of research information available.”

In addition to the Universiti Putra Malaysia, the other institutes that chose Scopus include: Chiang Mai University, Ching Yun University, Chulalongkorn University, Fukuoka University of Education, Gwang-Ju Institute of Science & Technology, Kasetsart University, Kyoto Institute of Technology, Kyungsung University, Mahidol University, Mokwon University, Ochanomizu University, Soonchunhyang University, Thammasat University, Tokyo University of Marine Science & Technology and the University of Macau.
