SCOPUS is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, features smart tools to track, analyse and visualise scholarly research.
Do you need to find the right references for an assignment, monitor a research topic or trend, identify the top researchers in a particular field or track the success of your own research? Abertay Library helps make your research pursuit easier through access to Scopus, the largest abstract and indexing database of peer-reviewed literature. Use Scopus to find and evaluate research, no matter what your area of interest.
Both IP and Shibboleth authentication have been set up for this resource in order to make on and off-campus access easier. This means that if you don't use the authenticated link and go directly to Scopus, you'll still be recognised as an Abertay user on-campus (via our IP range) but would have to select Institutional/Shibboleth login when attempting to access off-campus. We always recommend using the Library authenticated links provided.
The first time you login on-campus, you will see the screen below. Select the 'Nesli Abertay University, Athens + Shibboleth' option and check the 'Remember this organisation' box so that you won't see this screen next time. Click continue and enter your network username and password:
