Scopus LogoRecently I showed you how to set up search alerts in EBSCOhost databases. Back in September, Robin told you all about Scopus, an abstracts and citation database that focuses on science, engineering, and medicine, but includes some social science information. In it, you can find journals, conference proceedings, book chapters, book series, patents, and websites.

You can also automate search alerts to let you know when new articles or other resources that related to your topic are indexed. Happily, Scopus also has video demonstrations of how you can go about setting this up.
