Using alerting services to receive latest published information on your research topic.

What is a topic alert?

A topic or search alert allows you to receive alerts for articles that match your research interests. You will be alerted as new items that meet your search criteria are added to a database or electronic resource.

This type of alert allows you to receive the results of pre-programmed searches periodically. It usually involves doing a search in the database, looking at the search history and then saving the search as an alert.

Examples from databases

Most databases will require you to register before receiving email alerts.
