Few organizations can afford both Web of Science and Scopus, making it difficult for librarians to make in-depth comparisons to support acquisition decisions. The new SUNY-wide Elsevier Big Deal included access to Scopus making it possible for our university to perform a review based on the current and much improved interfaces of both databases. Search, display, & analysis features will be compared with a special emphasis on author/institution disambiguation via clustering and citation metrics.
