Scopus, the abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, announced that it has added "Articles-in-Press" (AiP), abstracts of accepted research papers published prior to being printed, from journals produced by Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers, and Nature Publishing Group (NPG). Scopus AiP abstracts are citable and precede the final published, printed version by up-to-four months. Researchers will gain access to the full-text by linking from Scopus to the publishers’ digital library. This early access provides connectivity to the current state of research in a range of fields, as well as a method for evaluating the output of authors and institutions.
