Web of Science: Search and Citation Alerts
Once you create a Web of Science account, you will be able to save your searches and set up search alerts for new publications that satisfy your search query.
You will be prompted to name your search before you save it. If you wish to have Web of Science email you when new papers are added to the database that satisfy your search query, make sure that the "Send me email alerts" box is checked.
Click on OK to exit the dialogue box, or "Manage Alerts" to change your alert settings.
Alternatively, you can manage your alerts by selecting "Alerts" from the top toolbar.
From the search alerts settings page, you can change the name of your searches, inactivate your search, and rerun your search. Click on more options for advanced settings.
The advanced settings section of your search alerts will allow you to add a description of the search, change email recipients, change the frequency of email alerts, and opt to receive new email alerts even when there are no new results from your search.
Citation databases allow you to set up a citation alert to notify you when a particular paper is cited. Citation alerts enable you to keep track of who is citing your work or other key work in your field.
To create a citation alert, click "Create citation alert" to the right of the citation's entry in Web of Science.
