In the fourth quarter of 2014 citation information for publications before 1996 will be made available in Scopus.
Until now there was a barrier for citation searches in Scopus. Pre 1996 material did not have citation information. The publisher of Scopus, Elsevier, has decided to remove this barrier in the database and will start adding citations to all material for the period 1970-1996 as well. Cited reference searches for pre 1996 publications will be made available in the fourth quarter of 2014.
