Staying informed

Follow articles and authors

Follow individual articles and authors

This general principle can be applied to ‘following’ an article or author in a bibliometric or altmetric database:

Locate the article or author’s profile and look on the screen for a Saved Search feature or the option to create an Alert. 

See below for specific instructions on how to do this for three of our databases
