    Activation of A&I Databases for Discovery

    A&I databases (such as Scopus and Web of Science) do not contain any full text. They are citation-only (apart from hybrid A&I databases, see Hybrid Collections in CDI). To enable users to search in these databases, you need a subscription from the provider, and to activate the target in SFX. Such targets are marked as subscription in the search rights field in the Target Edit window. To activate them, use any of the provided options. 

    The target is active for CDI if any of the icons in the active column of the target list in KBManager is clicked (the checkmark or the orange circle).


    Target Edit Window

    The databases are published to CDI and become searchable. The items appear as full text available on CDI if there is full text available from any of your active full text collections in SFX. For records where there is no full text available it appears as No full text available in the expand search of Primo.
