Free trial to SCOPUS now on!

The Library has arranged for a 1-month free trial of the SCOPUS database, running from 27 February.

SCOPUS is the number one rated database on our 'most wanted' list. However, the cost is rather high (approx £10,000 per annum, plus VAT). Therefore we would like your feedback on whether you think it provides sufficient added value when used in conjunction with the other databases we provide.

Go to
If you are accessing SCOPUS from outside School, click the Login option at the top right of the screen, choose the 'Athens/Other Institution login' option, then choose the 'UK Access Management Federation' option. Finally choose 'London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine' from the list of institutions and enter your username and password in the login box (DL students should enter their UoL Portal username and password at this point).

What does SCOPUS contain?
SCOPUS contains bibliographic information for thousands of journals in the life sciences, health sciences, physical sciences and social sciences including all of the data indexed in MEDLINE.

The Analytics section provides the SCOPUS alternative to the journal impact factor.

SCOPUS also provides direct PDF links to the journals we subscribe to via the ScienceDirect platform.

Please leave your feedback in the comments, or email me directly
