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 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 find out if a database has an alert service, search the database Help feature using the word "alerts." 

To set up an alert, set up an account in each database of interest. Make sure you remember the username and password you use, as the Library does not have access to these and cannot send you a reminder if you forget them. See EBSCO Support: How to Use Search Alerts as an example with step-by-step instructions.

Examples of databases that provide either a search alert or journal alert services (or both) include: Ebscohost databases, ProQuest databases, Sage Premier Journals Online, Project Muse, and JSTOR.

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