Elsevier Scopus Workshop - Celebrating Research Month @ JCU Townsville

Learn more about "Scopus" a premier abstract and citation database covering over 16,000 of the world’s best peer-reviewed journals.
Elsevier’s Scopus is a well renowned publisher in the field of citation analysis and bibliometrics. Excellence in Research for Australia will be partially measured, depending on the Field of Research, by citation data derived from either Scopus or Web of Science.

Citation analysis, along with peer judgment and assessments of publication counts and venues, is one of the most widely used methods in evaluating the research performance of academics and institutions. Citation counts provide researchers and administrators with an efficient indicator for assessing the research performance of authors, projects, programs, institutions, and countries and the relative impact and quality of their work.
