Conference Proceedings in SCOPUS and Web of Science [WOS]

Published conference proceedings are the first time many ideas appear in print, most papers presented at conferences will be developed into papers in scholarly or peer reviewed journals. However, for some areas of research, especially in science and technology, conferences papers are the main form of publication. Conference papers are also going to form part of the data for Research Excellence Framework [REF]. This has put pressure on the two potential partners to support the citation analysis for the REF, SCOPUS and Web of Science [WOS] to include confernce papers in their main products.

SCOPUS includes conference papers as part of the main product offering from over 500 conference proceedings. Searches can be limited by Document Type: conference.

Web of Science [WOS] has incorprated Conference Proceedings Citation Index - Science (CPCI-S) now included in the Bournemouth University subscription. This enables you to do citation searches using conference papers, analyse citations and use the new ciation mapping tool.
