The JPL Library is evaluating the usefulness of Scopus and SciVal between July 1st and August 15 2016. We would like to have as many JPLers as possible try it and let us know your thoughts about these analytical services.
What are Scopus and SciVal?
- Scopus is a very large reference and abstract database for peer-reviewed and academic literature in all disciplines, from science, engineering, medicine, to social sciences and humanities. It also features several smart tools to track, analyze, and visualize scholarly research. It is a major competitor to Web of Science.
Based on the records in Scopus and analytics technology, SciVal provides overviews of research output at the institution level, allows for benchmarking with other organizations, helps in identifying collaboration partners, and analyzes research trends with citation and usage data.
- Click Here to access Scopus and SciVal from within the JPL Network. (NOTE: You can also search remotely if you are connected via Pulse Secure!)
- Introductory video and help resources: click Here to see a short video and other documentation.
A few quick notes:
- To use the personalization features such as Alerts, MyList, and access SciVal, set up a userid and password. Otherwise, you can search the database without a userid.
- You can download records and abstracts during the trial period.
- Links to full text articles are NOT implemented during the trial period.
Questions and comments about Scopus and SciVal, please send to email@example.com
There are a few questions we would especially like you to answer! Please take a few minutes to answer via this anonymous Survey. Thank you!

On Monday, Sept. 28 the Paper Records Inventory application — which supports records storage, retrieval and return of inactive paper records to off-site storage — will be on a new user-friendly interface.
All data and records will be migrated to the new system. Some improvements include advanced search for storage request and box searches. There is also a new “my submissions” feature, which displays all the requests that you have created in the system.
For help using the application, please call the JPL Records help desk at ext. 4-5469 or visit the Records Management page.
For technical assistance, contact the JPL IT service desk: 4-HELP.
