Register for Scopus webinars in English or German — even power users learn a lot!

By Colleen DeLory, Elsevier | May 24, 2016

Scopus webinars in English and German

A software tester once told me that all but 10 minutes of a full-day training I had organized was a repeat of stuff he already knew. I was crushed. “So it was a waste of time?” I asked. 


“Oh no!” he responded. “It was worth it for those 10 minutes.”


I think you’ll get much more than 10 minutes’ worth of the right stuff for you in each hour-long Scopus webinar.


For new Scopus users or power users, the webinars provide insight into the world’s largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature, including scientific journals, books and conference proceedings. There are now more than 62 million pieces of content indexed in Scopus from 5,000 publishers. It has a rich feature set for both search and analysis, and these webinars will help you make the most of it.



Testimonials from attendees


Marina Englesakis “Very clear, concise, useful presentation! I’ve used Scopus for years, and wasn’t aware of a number of these elements! Thank you for sharing them!”

These are just a few of the many positive comments the Scopus trainers have received this year. 



What you’ll learn 


In each webinar, our experts explore a variety of Scopus functions and features — perhaps ones you have never heard of, or others you’ve been implementing in a limited capacity. 


  • Learn tips that will save you time – 10 minutes saved a day for a year would be a week’s work of time!
  • Discover features such as metrics or APIs that allow you to offer new library services 
  • Ensure your searches are comprehensive and current


And for librarians, this new knowledge will have a ripple effect as you share it with your grad students and researchers.



New webinar topics every month


Free monthly webinars on different topics are available in English and German and can be viewed live or on demand. Topics include metrics, author profiles, content coverage, search tips, APIs and more.


The product managers who design and launch product functions present the English-language webinars, which offers attendees an unparalleled opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback. On the German side, customer consultants with in-depth product knowledge present.
