Q. How do I set up an auto alert to be informed of new articles published in my fields of interests?
An auto alert is a saved search that runs automatically each time new articles added to a database. The search profile you create retrieves any new article citations that match your search criteria and the results will be emailed to you without any effort on your part.
You can set up auto-alerts through databases such as PubMed, Scopus, or CINAHL. First, develop your search strategy (with the help of a librarian), then register for, or log into, your database account. Next, save your search strategy, and create an alert.
