Citation Indexes: Scopus & Web of Science

How to use Scopus and Web of Science for basic research and in-depth literature searching.

Citation Indexes by Discipline

While Scopus and Web of Science cover the spectrum of research disciplines, some disciplines also maintain their own citation indexes which do the same citation analysis but with a narrower focus.

If you work primarily in any of the disciplines listed below, we recommend getting to know the relevant citation index as well as the more general ones. Some of these can also be found on the A-Z list of databases (log into Okta if prompted).

Biomedical/Health Sciences


Computer & Information Science
