Elsevier has announced the launch of Scopus, a scientific research tool that was unveiled to universities eight months ago. Scopus, which covers 14,000 scientific titles plus 167 million scientific Web pages and a collection of abstracts going back forty years, is now commercially available for trial and sale to institutions. Pricing for Scopus is based in an annual subscription model. Development partner universities Toronto and Nevada have signed up for Scopus before the launch, as has the University of Newcastle, Australia.
