Table of Contents Alerts
No longer worry about missing an issue of your favourite journal! You can have the table of contents (ToC) of journals emailed directly to you. This function is available in most databases. You can also go to most individual journal websites to set up ToC alerts if the database you like using does not offer this service.
Article Citation Alerts
Want to know when your work is cited? Many databases offer a citation alert service that will inform you when a chosen work is cited.
Want to know when a key researcher publishes new material? In many databases you can follow an author to receive email updates every time a new work by that author is indexed in that database. You can also set an author citation alert in some databases such as Scopus that inform you whenever anyone publishes a work that cites a particular author.
1.To set up alerts, we recommend you to design and run a focused search first. This prevents receiving lots of articles via your email account.
2.Manage your Alerts and avoid your email alerts becoming SPAM . Delete or change the frequency of your alerts are if they no longer relevant or of interest.
