Setting Up a Journal Alert

Use Journal Alerts to receive the following:

  • An alert when articles by a particular author are added to the database
  • Notification when new articles are published in journals you are tracking
  • The Table of Contents (TOC) as new issues of your requested journals are released
  • Notification when new articles that fit other search criteria such as subjects and keywords are published

To set up an alert, set up an account in each database of interest. These personal accounts will not be your UW-W Net-ID.

Below are examples of databases that provide either a search alert or journal alert services (or both):

For journals or databases not listed, search the specific database Help feature using the word "alerts." 

For assistance in setting up a search alert or a journal alert, contact the reference desk or your liaison librarian.
