Good Habit: Set up alerts from journals , databases, Googlescholar

Journals and Databases provide instructions on how to set up topic or article alerts including GoogleScholar https://scholar.google.com/intl/en/scholar/help.html#alerts

The advantage of alerts is that they save you time in retyping your keywords to find updated information.

  1. Choose a journal or database
  2. Create your profile in the journal or database or in GoogleScholar
  3. Set up daily/weekly or monthly journal article alerts which are sent to your email. Follow the source's instructions
  4. You have to first set up a free profile within the electronic journal or database so the system knows where to send updated information.
  5. The next step is to type in the keywords for the system to use to monitor updated journal articles.
