Scopus, an abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and web sources with smart tools to track, analyze, and visualize research, has added 800 new titles, including more than 200 Social Science titles, to its database of 15,000 peer-reviewed journals. In addition to the Social Science titles, peer-reviewed journals originating from fields such as biomedicine to engineering were added. Scopus invites users to submit titles for inclusion in the database. The main criterion for selection, as defined by the group, is their scientific expertise on the particular subject area and region. Additional criteria are: the availability of an English abstract, frequency of publication, and a peer-reviewed quality control process.
