Arts & Humanities bibliometric tools: stretching Scopus

Writing about web page

I have been looking for a bibliometric tool for Arts & Humanities, something similar to Journal Citation Reports and ideally also something like

There are alternative tools that can be stretched to serve for A&H scientometrics, like OCLC WorldCat for libraries’ holdings, or Harzing’s Publish or Perish for Google Scholar, but I have just had a quick play with Scopus and it retrieved 93,934 references, each with their “Cited by” count, which could of course be narrowed down to individual journal titles and then be all exported and added up. When I included the “multidisciplinary” references the number of articles retrieved was 394,058, which can be broken down into document types:
Article (293,016)
Review (23,985)
Note (19,258)
Short Survey (15,530)
Letter (15,362)
Editorial (7,160)
Erratum (3,925)
Conference Review (13)
Book (1)

Writing about web page
