INFO: New-look Scopus database

The Scopus database at  introduced a new streamlined interface over the weekend:

  • It is now more action driven – some items/options only appear active when the user has performed a search e.g. the Export option will only become available when the user has selected results to export
  • The re-design is described as “enhancing readability”
  • There’s much more detail available from a Scopus blog post at but most current users of the database (one of the heaviest used databases that we subscribe to) will continue to use the database with little difficulty – you just need to adjust to the new look!

Library workshops will include information on the new search interface where relevant – more information on our free workshops for February and March is available in an earlier post at

If you have any queries or difficulties with the new interface library staff will be happy to help.
