ScienceDirect and Scopus - more content; more compatible browsers

A ScienceDirect and Scopus update is scheduled for 1 December 2012.

This will extend full internet browser coverage to include Google Chrome and Safari, including Safari on the iPad.

If you use one of these browsers you now have access to the full functionality of ScienceDirect and Scopus.

Firefox and Internet Explorer 7, 8 & 9 are already fully compatible with these databases.
 
During this scheduled maintenance, there may be minor disruptions to some ScienceDirect and Scopus functionality

Scopus content

The Scopus title list has also been updated, with more than 700 new titles added since April 2012 - bringing the total number of active titles to almost 20,500. 

Scopus has broad international subject coverage with 33% of its titles in Health Sciences, 30% in Physical Sciences, 22% in Social Sciences and 15% in Life Sciences.
