Remote access to the University of Toronto Libraries' digital collections is only available to current students, faculty, and University staff. Access to e-books, full text articles, databases, and other digital tools require users to log in via the University of Toronto's web login service. If you forget this before you start your session, you will be directed to log in as soon as required.
To create a very broad search, you can search for your topic by Article Title, Abstract, Keywords. Clicking on the "+" box will create a second row for you to add more search terms. When you want Scopus to search for two terms that are not necessarily connected, use AND between the terms and ensure that you have used capital letters. In the example below, Scopus will look for records where the three terms, Kant, Mathematics, Philosophy appear in either the title or abstract or as keywords.
You can make your results page a little more manageable by refining your results. You can limit the search to certain years, subject areas, format type, etc. to create a smaller list of results.
Related Documents brings up a list of all other records that share the same references as the original article or book. The number on the right-hand side of the image below refers to the number of times the article or book has been cited by other authors. You can click on that number to find records of more recent books or articles.
Select the records you want to save and click on Export. This will allow you to save relevant articles from your search.
