This case compares the cited reference results of SciFinder and Scopus for the article that follows:
Noninvasive methods for quantitating blood time-activity curves from mouse PET images obtained with fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose. Journal of Nuclear Medicine 39 (4), pp. 729-734 (1998).
SciFinder found 24 cited references with 4 unique, while Scopus found 39 and 19 unique cited references. Considering the 4 unique found by SciFinder, all are not covered by Scopus. Three of the 4 are monographs: New Synthetic Technologies in Medicinal Chemistry (from the RSC Drug Discovery Series), Nanoscale Technology in Biological Systems (CRC Press), and Positron Emission Tomography (Springer). The fourth unique item is in EJNMMI Research, a Springer open access journal.
Examining the 19 unique found by Scopus, 13 have article records in SciFinder, but there are no citation lists, and therefore no citing links. All of the article records are imported from Medline. These are in the journals: Journal of Nuclear Medicine (3 articles), Molecular Imaging and Biology (2 articles), Annals of Nuclear Medicine, European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (2 articles), IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Magazine, Circulation, NuklearMedizin, ILAR Journal, and Academic Radiology. In addition, there are 6 unique Scopus cited references that are not covered by SciFinder. Two are in journals that SciFinder only provides selective coverage: IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science and Molecular Imaging. The other 4 are in conference proceedings and journals that SciFinder does not cover completely: IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record (2010), IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record (2008), Minerva Biotechnologica, and Chinese Pharmacological Bulletin.
