Scopus Expands Arts & Humanities Coverage

Jun 16, 2009

Elsevier announced that its flagship product Scopus, a citation database of peer-reviewed literature, has doubled its current Arts & Humanities (A&H) titles to 3,500, by adding global journals using the European Science Foundation’s European Reference Index for Humanities (ERIH). ERIH provides scholars, libraries, and other institutions with lists of A&H journals to raise awareness of the titles as a resource for content and an avenue for publishing original research. Scopus can now provide researchers with access to national and international A&H journals. Like the existing titles in Scopus, the new journals contain cited references that make previously unavailable bibliometrics data accessible. Scopus partnered with Project MUSE, a not-for-profit platform founded by John Hopkins University Press and the Milton S. Eisenhower Library (MSEL) at John Hopkins University.
