Many databases allow you to set up Research Alerts that notify you when new materials are available on topics that you select. In general, "alerts" refer to email notifications when something of interest to you has been published or added to a database. These can be on specific topics or from specific journals. Definitions, terminology and frequency of notification vary from publisher to publisher. These services are not available for all databases and journals, but are becoming popular features. Email notifications will usually require you to register your email address and preferences. Any email address will work; it does not need to be your official university email address. An alternative to alerts is RSS feeds.
