Scopus is an abstract and citation database of research literature and quality web sources in the medical, scientific, technical, social sciences, and arts and humanities fields. Scopus covers nearly 18,000 titles from more than 5,000 publishers, and more half of its content comes from outside the U.S. The database provides powerful citation analysis tools for articles, authors, institutions, and journal metrics.

Information about how to use Scopus including user guides, video tutorials, and more is available here.
