A Tale of Two Discovery and Citation Analysis Tools: A QQ Comparison of Web of Science and Scopus
MetadataShow full item record
For many years, the Texas A&M University Libraries have subscribed to both Scopus and Web of Science, two similar discovery and citation analysis products often used to measure research impact. Following some changes to the Libraries’ materials budget, the authors were asked to analyze the two products to determine whether one was preferable to the other. To accomplish this task the authors took a two-fold approach combining quantitative data, like citation, usage, and title overlap analysis, with qualitative data gathered by surveying faculty and other stakeholders. The authors’ findings, which were a bit surprising, are presented in this poster.
