2 Currency
JIBS had noted that Scopus coverage is often lagging behind PubMed. Elsevier’s response was that PubMed often leads the field in terms of currency because
i) it includes Articles in Press (AiP)
ii) it does not have to capture, index and match citation information.

Elsevier is examining ways to include articles in press (AiP) in a future Scopus release.

3 Scopus and Discovery Gate integration
DiscoveryGate customers are able to configure their own link options. For assistance with setting up links from DiscoveryGate, please contact

4 Institutional repositories and Scopus Selected Sources tab
