Scopus Library Guide

Rensselaer Libraries' guide for using Scopus - a multidisciplinary abstract and citation database. Includes tutorials for using tools for tracking, analyzing, and visualizing search results.

Look in the Results list (and within individual records), and click on the "Get it at RPI" icon to check for full text article availability.

Get it at RPI

We also encourage you to install the LibKey Nomad browser extension that assists with access to library resources. The Chrome and Firefox browser extension:

  • provides one-click access to articles from both journal publishers and aggregators like EBSCO and ProQuest
  • uses Unpaywall and other sources to open access articles
  • links to ILLiad to request articles not available through our subscriptions via interlibrary loan
  • uses the university's standard authentication method so no credentials are cached in your browser like some third-party tools do

Simply install the extension. During the installation process, you'll be asked to identify your library; simply search for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

To Print or Email a single or multiple citations:

  • Choose an article from the Results list by clicking on the article title, or choose multiple citations by checking the boxes next to the desired citations.
  • To print OR email the article's citation and abstract, click in the box next to the desired action.
  • Select the options you'd like (options vary depending on which action was selected) and click the Print or Send button.

You can download multiple documents in Scopus at one time. The Document Download Manager (DDM) feature in Scopus allows you to select and automatically download, re-name and save up to 50 documents at one time. Read more at Scopus' blog, and download the Chrome extension to get started.
