Create a topic alert

A good way to follow developments within your research topic is to create so-called alerts in any of our databases.
You can do this based on a particular search query that corresponds to your topic or on a particular journal that you want to follow. In the first case, you get an email with information if something new has entered the database that match your search query, in the second case you will receive an e-mail when a new issue of the journal is added to the database.
You can also create alerts on whenever a selected author or  article has been cited.
You can create alerts in almost all databases. In some of them you have to create an account.
Here are examples from the databases Scopus, Design and Applied Arts Index and Business Source Premiere.

Create a topic alert:

alerts1Perform your search. Go to Set Alert,Then – create an account.Log in and specify how often you want to get alerts to your email

 

 

alerts2Perform  your search. Go to Create Alert. You don’t need to create an account in this database, just fill in how often you want to receive alerts by e -mail, etc.

 

alerts3_001

 

Perform your search. Go to Create Alert. You don’t need to create an account in this database.
