Scopus trial ending

Just a reminder that our access to Elsevier's SCOPUS database will end on 31st March this year, at the end of the free trial period.

We asked for users' views on the database in November, and from these, and the usage statistics, it was clear that there was not sufficient demand to justify trying to fund the subscription, a cost which could only have been met by dropping other databases.

WoS has very similar subject coverage to SCOPUS, and much higher usage here. For Engineers, Compendex would usually be the best alternative
