Scopus - decisions please

We have had the Scopus database from Elsevier on trial for the last 12 months. We have to decide by 1st December whether or not we want to purchase it. The price will be £15,000 per annum.

It has an easy interface and some good citation searching features but I am under the impression that there may be gaps in its journal coverage.

What do you think? Will anyone be highly inconvenienced if we lose access to this database (in March 2007)? Please let Linda or I know by mid-November if you have a strong case for keeping access.

Note: Although Scopus is an Elsevier product, our full text journal access will not be affected by our decision on Scopus. ScienceDirect is a separate package.
