    **By using Scopus I was able to define the scope/limitation of the studies for one of my projects , because after searching in Scopus I came to know that very few research papers were published on the subject after 2012. I also came to know who are the institutions and authors working on the subject. It helps me in collaborating with those researchers in the field. This saves not only my time but also helps me in establishing linkages with other institutes.
