Peter Jasco Revisits Scopus

It seems that on the content site we still have issues on Jasco's review:

"No matter how smart and swift the software is, it cannot compensate for certain types of database content deficiencies such as those caused by omissions of articles, issues and entire volumes from core journals which should have complete and consistent coverage. If users can so easily get an X-ray of the entire database in Scopus, then the developers certainly can get a more comprehensive, more detailed and visual report about gaps and roller-coaster coverage of journals. They could help by providing a map for fixing this problem and to give teeth to the proud claim of the exceptionally broad journal base too."
