Scopus covers more than 50 million records:
How to search?
Scopus content is integrated with and searchable in DTU Findit.

Citation analysis with Scopus
Scopus uses the SCImago Journal & Country Rank (SJR) as their metrics for measuring research impact. Thus, you can use Scopus for citation analysis. Amongst other things you can:
Please note that cited references in Scopus only go back to 1996, and citation counts for publications published before 1996 will therefore be inaccurate. However, the size of Scopus means that a citation analysis for articles published before 1996 may well result in a higher citation count than a similar count in e.g. Web of Science - even if the latter includes reference lists from all publications in the database.
The research area must be taken into consideration when performing a citation analysis. The majority of the Scopus records consists of journal articles published in English, and if it is common practice amongst researchers within a specific research area to publish articles in non-English speaking journals, or if the majority of the research is published in books or formats poorly covered by Scopus, a Scopus citation analysis will be inaccurate.
Additional features in Scopus – news feeds and alerts
When using your DTU login, you have access to the search features and analytical tools in Scopus. If you create a Scopus account, however, you will be able to set up various news feeds and alerts:
