Web of Science / Scopus

The trials for Web of Science and Scopus have ended. Web of Science "won" at SDSM&T in a landslide. That feedback has been sent on to the people who will be negotiating contracts for databases. Thanks to everyone who took the time to help with this process. If you would like an email when new databases become available post a comment with your email address.
