This guide describes how to create alerts that will automatically email you when an author's publication, keywords, affiliations or other search criteria appear in a database. You will be able to connect to the citation, download the citation, and full text (when available) from the alert.
We will be generating author publication and citation alerts in the following three databases.
- Scopus (the most comprehensive database of them all)
- ISI Web of Science
These are the most extensive databases for retrieving publications such as scholarly articles, meeting abstracts, technical reports, book chapters and other documents.
We strongly recommend that you take the time to create alerts in all three databases. While they all access the major journal,s each one additionally accesses different journals and databases.
