Scopus 1900–2020: Growth in articles, abstracts, countries, fields, and journals
Quantitative Science Studies
Scientometric research often relies on large-scale bibliometric databases of academic journal articles. Long term and longitudinal research can be affected if the composition of a database varies over time, and text processing research can be affected if the percentage of articles with abstracts changes.

The results show sustained exponential growth from 1900,doi:10.1162/qss_a_00177 fatcat:m7u5cr7fobgzdmjva3d3pkrsne
