This study examines the differences between Scopus and Web of Science in the citation counting, citation ranking, and h-index of 22 top human-computer interaction (HCI) researchers from EQUATOR—a large British Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration project. Results indicate that Scopus provides significantly more coverage of HCI literature than Web of Science, primarily du e to coverage of relevant ACM and IEEE peer-reviewed conference proceedings. No significant differences exist between the two databases if citations in journals only are com pared. Although broader coverage of the literature does not significantly alter the rel ative citation ranking of individual researchers, Scopus helps distinguish between the r esearchers in a more nuanced fashion than Web of Science in both citation counting and h-index. Scopus also generates significantly different maps of citation networks o f individual scholars than those generated by Web of Science. The study also present s a comparison of h-index scores based on Google Scholar with those based on the uni on of Scopus and Web of Science. The study concludes that Scopus can be used as a so le data source for citation-based research and evaluation in HCI, especially when cit ations in conference proceedings are sought, and that h scores should be manually calculated instead of re lying on system calculations.
