How to set up citation alerts ...

... in Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar. For those of you who can't make the workshop this week, or who would like a quick reminder.

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.
