What is Scopus?
Scopus , officially named SciVerse Scopus , is a bibliographic database containing abstracts and citations for academic journal articles. It covers nearly 18,000 titles including coverage of 16,500 peer-reviewed journals. It is owned by Elsevier and is available online by subscription. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scopus )
Is Scopus the only one? Google Scholar Web of Science SCOPUS
SCOPUS = 20% more coverage than Web of Science
Web of Science goes back to 1900 compared to SCOPUS (from 1966)
Google Scholar is rather inaccurate

International Publication Tips
Search for journals BEFORE you start writing the article, and eliminate as you write!
Cite articles from the journal you want to submit to (favored by journals looking to increase citation)
If citation is very hard since similar articles is rare/non-existent, then perhaps you have the wrong journal to submit to.
