Dimensions database has the most exhaustive coverage

According to a new article on arXiv.org «The Journal Coverage of Web of Science, Scopus and Dimensions: A Comparative Analysis», the Dimensions database has the most complete coverage.

The authors of the article note that traditionally, Web of Science and Scopus have been the two most widely used databases for bibliometric analyses. However, during the last few years some new scholarly databases, such as Dimensions, have come up. Several previous studies have compared different databases, either through a direct comparison of article coverage or by comparing the citations across the databases.

This article attempts to compare the journal coverage of the three databases: Web of Science, Scopus and Dimensions. The most recent master journal lists of the three databases have been used for the purpose of identifying the overlapping and unique journals covered in the databases. The results indicate that the databases have significantly different journal coverage, with the Web of Science being most selective and Dimensions being the most exhaustive.

About 99.11 % and 96.61 % of the journals indexed in Web of Science are also indexed in Scopus and Dimensions, respectively. Scopus has 96.42 % of its indexed journals also covered by Dimensions. Dimensions database has the most exhaustive coverage, with 82.22 % more journals covered as compared to Web of Science and 48.17 % more journals covered as compared to Scopus.
