The Moody Medical Library
now has access to Scopus, a multidisciplinary database covering the health sciences and many more areas of scholarship. It permits discovering how many times an article has been cited, offers Altmetrics, and generates attractive citation and author reports. The Library no longer subscribes to Web of Science or Journal Impact Factors. Scopus provides a very similar journal impact metric as well as additional measures of journal, paper, and author impact.
Details about these metrics and more are available on the Measuring Research Impact Guide (http://guides.utmb.edu/impact
). If you would like a demonstration or class of all that Scopus has to offer, for either yourself or your department, please contact a librarian. There will be classes offered in early 2019.
If you have questions or need immediate assistance, please contact a librarian at (409) 772-2372, or via chat
