Scopus is an abstract and citation database. While it doesn't contain the full text of articles, it enables you to search a huge collection of scholarly publications, which you then may be able to access from another Library database or subscription from the University of Bolton.
Abstracts are brief synopses of articles.
A citation gives credit to a source, and contains publication information such as author(s), title and date. Most Scopus citations link to the full-text version of the publication hosted on various publishers' platforms.
If you find a publication in Scopus that we don't subscribe to, we may be able to acquire it by Inter Library Loan for you.
