Setting up Custom Email Alerts in Scholarly Databases

Email alerts are a simple way to keep track of new publications in your field.

Several of the Library's subscribed databases allow you to create email alerts that informs you every time a new article is published that corresponds to a search you have created.

Some databases can also send you via email the table of contents for a specific journal every time a new issue is released.

Below are examples of how to create alerts in some of our databases:
