Setting up citation alerts or RSS feeds

This blog post looks at how to create citation alerts for specific articles in the three main citation databases.

You can see more details of how to set-up search alerts and RSS feeds in our previous blog posts:
Search alerts for science and medicine databases
Search alerts for arts, humanities and social science databases
Setting up Author alerts or RSS feeds


Web of Science


Search Web of Science for the article you are interested in. If you find it, click on the article title and then click on the Create Citation Alert link on the right-hand side of the page. You will need to login to, or create, a Web of Science account to activate the alert.

Scopus


Search Scopus for the article you are interested in. If you find it, click on the article title and then click on the Set Citation Alert link on the right-hand side of the page. You will need to login to, or create, a Scopus account to activate the alert.

You can also set-up an RSS feed by clicking on the Set Citation Feed link. You do not need a Scopus account to create a RSS feed.

Google Scholar


Search Google Scholar for the article or book you are interested in. If you find it, click on the Cited By link under the item (there will not be a link if the item has not yet been cited). Then click on the Create Alert link on the left-hand side of the page. 

You do not need a Google account to create an alert, just use whatever email address you prefer the alert to be sent to.

Library publishing services

The Library offers several services to help you publish and disseminate your research. We can help you publish reports, journals and conference proceedings. We also support the publishing of digital collections.

Research publications The Library can help you to publish one-off reports in an open access format. See this example from the SAPPHIRE Group in Health Sciences.  If you want to start a new open access journal or conference proceedings, we have our own version of Open Journal Systems (OJS). This is journal management and publishing platform for academic publications. Articles published through this system are free to any reader, and no APCs are charged to authors. 
Please contact Library Research Services for more information: librarians@le.ac.uk

If you have any questions about the training please email Selina or myself: librarians@le.ac.uk
