April Elsevier webinars on the Scopus and Sciencedirect databases

The Elsevier publishing house, which provides JU with access to the Scopus citation database and to the publisher's multidisciplinary database of journals, is organizing webinars in April dedicated to these electronic resources. Webinars are accessible free of charge to all JU staff and students (use the university e-mail address in the application). Webinars are in English.


The Power of Data: Beyond the basics
12. dubna 2022, 10.00 hod.

Scopus is not only over 82 million records from peer-reviewed scientific publications. In addition to access to relevant literature, essential in the scientific process, the Scopus database has implemented citation analysis and source comparison features. Additionally, there are extended possibilities through the SciVal tool and analysis of data aggregated to researcher, institution, or country level. During the webinar, we will show practical examples of reports and analyses done based on Scopus data, and we will share how to perform them.

Science Direct: Knowledge at your fingertips
26. dubna 2022, 10.00 hod.
