Transcript of "slide ประกอบการบรรยาย"

  1. 1. Scopus User Experience Ruchareka Asavisanu scras@mahidol.ac.th Stang Mongkolsuk Library and Information Division, Faculty of Science, Mahidol University, Bangkok 10400 THAILAND
  2. 2. What A&I databases we’ve already had in Mahidol University ? Web of Science http://isiknowledge.com/wos Science Citation Index Expanded (1999-present) 7-year backfiles Social Science Citation Index (2001-present) 5-year backfiles Arts & Humanitites Citation Index (2001-present) 5-year backfiles SciFinder Scholar CAPlus (1907-present) MEDLINE (1966-present) PubMed MEDLINE (free access) http://pubmed.gov Google Scholar (free access) http://scholar.google.com
  3. 3. Why SCOPUS ??
  4. 4. Good Features in SCOPUS (From my own experience) 1. SCOPUS covers some peer-reviewed journals from Thailand, which contain English-language articles with academic quality norms, such as  Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health  Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand  Asian Pacific Journal of Allergy and Immunology It’s good to see the publications from such Thai peer-reviewed journals, and also their citation counts. (I also hope to see more Thai journals included in SCOPUS soon, especially ScienceAsia, The Kasetsart Journal. Natural Sciences, Songklanakarin Journal of Science and Technology Mahidol University Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences etc.)
  5. 5. 2. Cited reference searching in SCOPUS is very easy to interprete (easier than Web of Science) 3. Speedy search / well-designed user interface. 4. The result lists in SCOPUS are extremely excellent. 5. “Refine Results” feature of SCOPUS is the best comparing to any other databases. (better than SciFinder Scholar’s Analyse feature) 6. SCOPUS use simple terminology. Easy-to-understand for non-librarian end users.
  6. 6. Comments & Questions : The database content is still incomplete. Some articles and some issues are frequently missing. For example, I cannot find these articles in SCOPUS : Tetrahedron 1965,21(6):1453-1470. (This journal is included in SCOPUS, and this article can be found in ScienceDirect !) Chem. Pharm. Bull. 1971;19:207-208. (Other issues of this journal is included in SCOPUS)
  7. 7. Comparison of Search Results Keywords : “Faculty of Science, Mahidol” 2000-2004 YEAR Manual Compiled WOS SCOPUS 2004 194 184 156 2003 215 190 176 2002 189 134 80 2001 180 111 64 2000 153 113 70 SCOPUS’s content still incomplete !
  8. 8. Comment :  SCOPUS should has operator “SAME” to find records containing “faculty of science” and “Mahidol” in the same subfield (address)
  9. 9. What I don’t like about SCOPUS  The extremely expensive price, of course!  Purshasing by only one university budget seems to be difficult in the present economic situation.  National subscription (by ThaiLis - UNiNet) ??
  10. 10. THE END Scopus umbretta ( Kenya Bird )
