Journal and Search Alerts for Business

Alerts are a great way to stay current with your research. This guide will help with setting up alerts with several of the large database providers.

Staying up-to-date with alerts

Below are various alerts that will help you stay up-to-date with your research and help you manage it more efficiently.

Journal Alerts - By Title

Some publishers allow researchers to subscribe to journal alerts directly from their website.  Most times, this involves finding the journal online, then looking for the RSS icon or link for email alerts.

Google Scholar alerts

Creating Alerts in Google Scholar:

  1. Enter your search terms and run the search
  2. On the results page, click on the gray envelope located in the left-hand column labeled as "Create Alert"
  3. Set alert parameters -- Alert name, email address, # of results
  4. Click "Create Alert"

To create a citation alert, click on "Cited by" link below the item for which you want to set the alert. Then click on "Create Alert" icon.
