Do you feel overwhelmed by the amount of time it takes to stay aware of the latest research and trends in your discipline?
Do you have so many articles and journals in your 'to read' pile that they end up being irrelevant by the time you get to them?
A great way to save time and keep up with new literature is through the use of alerts. Many online resources will let you create alerts to automatically re-run your searches and notify you when new articles are released. Alerts can be delivered by email or as an RSS feed and usually require some form of account registration.
Different databases have different methods for subscribing to search alerts. Usually the database vendor uses one interface for all the databases they offer. Most vendors permit users to create search alerts across a number of databases by creating an account on the vendor website.
