Good evening, everyone.

The Corpus of Contemporary American English (COCA) is by far the most widely-used of these corpora. In early 2020, we dramatically expanded the scope and size and features of COCA to make it even more useful for researchers, teachers, and learners.
The corpus contains more than one billion words of data, including 20 million words each year from 1990-2019 (with the same genre balance year by year). This makes COCA the only corpus of English that is 1) large 2) recent and 3) has a wide range of genres.

Does "scope" refer to "genres" in this context?
