Have you tried Scopus yet?

(9 May 2017)

Durham University staff and students now have access to Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature: scientific journals, books and conference proceedings.

Read more about what content is covered by Scopus:

As well as indexing nearly 20,000 academic journals from a wide range of subjects and dates from 1996 to the present, Scopus also provides the citation data which was used for REF2014 and is currently used in both the QS World University Rankings and the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Read more about how Scopus citation data is used in rankings and assessments:

You can access Scopus from the Library Catalogue, or our databases page, or by clicking on the image below.

We will be organising short training sessions for Durham users, but in the meantime online support can be found via the Scopus website.
