Scopus is Elsevier’s abstract and citation database launched in 2004. Scopus covers nearly 36,377 titles from 11,678 publishers, of which 34,346 are peer-reviewed journals in top-level subject fields: life sciences, social sciences, physical sciences and health sciences, it covers three types of sources: book series and trade journals. All journals covered in the Scopus database, regardless of who they are published under, are reviewed each year to ensure high quality standards are maintained. Searches in Scopus incorporate searches of patent databases. Scopus gives four types of quality measure for each title. Evaluating ease of use and coverage of Scopus and the Web of Science, a 2006 study concluded that "Scopus is easy to navigate for the novice user.... The ability to search both forward and backward from a particular citation would be helpful to the researcher; the multidisciplinary aspect allows the researcher to search outside of his discipline" and "One advantage of WOS over Scopus is the depth of coverage, with the full WOS database going back to 1945 and Scopus going back to 1966.

However, Scopus and WOS complement each other as neither resource is all inclusive."Scopus offers author profiles which cover affiliations, number of publications and their bibliographic data and details on the number of citations each published document has received. It has alerting features that allows registered users to track changes to a profile and a facility to calculate authors' h-index. In 2016, a free website, Scopus CiteScore, was introduced, it provides citation data for all 25,000+ active titles such as journals, conference proceedings and books in Scopus and provides an alternative to the impact factor. Scopus IDs for individual authors can be integrated with the non-proprietary digital identifier ORCID. Since Elsevier is the owner of Scopus and is one of the main international publishers of scientific journals, an independent and international Scopus Content Selection and Advisory Board was established in 2009 to prevent a potential conflict of interest in the choice of journals to be included in the database and to maintain an open and transparent content coverage policy, regardless of publisher.

The board consists of scientists and subject librarians. According to the Scimago Journal Rankings, as of 2016, Nature had the highest h-index, at 1011, CA - A Cancer Journal for Clinicians had the highest SJR of 39.285, CiteScore 2016. provides country ranking based on Total Published Documents, Citable documents, Self-Citations, Citations per Document and h-index. As per this website, as of 2019, the United States was in first place, the United Kingdom was in the second place and Germany was in third place based on national h-index.

The campus located in Squirrel Hill houses three units: two units focus on pediatric rehabilitation and the third specializes in Prader-Willi Syndrome. The facility has eighty-two inpatient beds. In the hospital, each patient is assigned to a team of therapists directed by a physician. Licensed nurses and healthcare workers give care twenty-four hours a day; the child and their family are assigned to a case manager who facilitates communication between caregivers and the family.

Results of the study were published in the scientific Biomarkers. Similar studies are now being planned to further this research. A pilot study conducted by the director of Physical Therapy, Christopher Joseph, MPT, in conjunction with Chatham University researched the treatment of RND, reflex neurovascular dystrophy; the results concluded that an "intensive exercise regimen enable significant increases in functional activity."U. S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. has helped secure funding for the Children's Institute of Pittsburgh. This funding has contributed to the creation of an autism center and pediatric unit, which treat children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. In 2010, the contributions secured the purchase of research equipment for the study of environmental triggers of autism, to further the development of autism treatment. On April 22, 2010, two dogwood trees were planted during the private ground-breaking ceremony for the Children's Institute of the Pittsburgh Nimick Family Therapeutic garden.

The ceremony was conducted by the Nimick Family in honor of the late Tommy Nimick. Tommy and Florence Nimick devoted their lives to working with children at the Children's Institute in Squirrel Hill; the garden
