http://www.info.sciverse.com/documents/files/scopustraining/resourcelibrary/xls/title_list.xlsx Type of books Scopus will cover scholarly books that represent fully referenced, original research or literature reviews. In Scope: Monograph: An academic book on a small area of learning; also: a written account of a single thing. Edited Volume: Edited books, monographs or short series of volumes consisting of contributions from a number of authors. Major Reference Work: A book that contains useful facts and information (excluding dictionaries and some encyclopaedias) Graduate level textbook: A book used in the study of a subject as, a) one containing a presentation of the principles of a subject, b) a literary work relevant to the study of a subject. Not in Scope: Dissertation, Undergraduate level text book, Atlas, Popular science book, Manual, Abstract book, Yearbook, Biography The Challenge: Scholarly Name Ambiguity Many researchers that too closely resemble one another. Dr. Smith Dr. Smith Dr. Smith Researchers publish under name variations. Dr. Smith Dr. J. Smith Dr. James Smith The Solution: The ORCID Registry Dr. Smith Dr. J. Smith Dr. James Smith ORCID Mission: ORCID aims to solve the name ambiguity problem in research and scholarly communications by creating a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers Dr. James Smith 46533489 The (Future) Benefits of ORCID By issuing unique identifiers to all researchers, ORCID aims to facilitate discovery and evaluation for researchers, institutions, scholarly societies and publishers.

Reflects most current journal scopes, thereby taking ongoing changes into account 3-year citation window: demonstrably the fairest compromise Manipulation-resistant: Article type consistency. Only citations to and from articles, reviews, and conference papers are considered Breadth of coverage: Scopus has over 20,500 sources: 19,500 journals as well as trade publications, proceedings and book series. CONS: More complex methodology Do not take amount of review content into account THANK YOU!
