Alerts in databases

Many databases (e.g. EconLit, LLBA, PsycINFO, PubMed, Reaxys, Rechtsorde) offer alerting services: easily set up automatic alerts on new literature by email or RSS.
Ask the information specialists in your field of research about all the different options.

Table of Contents (ToC)

Many journals offer a 'Sign up for ToC alert' option for receiving contents of new issues. Another way to track newly published articles is to create a search strategy based on one or more journal titles through databases such as Web of Science and PubMed or via a platform like EBSCO or Ovid.

The free service JournalTOCs can alert you by email or RSS when new issues of your selected journals are published.

Citation alerts

With Web of Science Citation alerts you can be alerted of new citations to an earlier published article or to citations of a particular author's publications.

Alerts by RSS

RSS stands for Rich Site Summary (aka Really Simple Syndication). Alerts by RSS can be read through a browser extension or a RSS reader, such as Feedly or Feedreader. You subscribe to RSS feeds for free by clicking on this icon on webpages. The URL you subsequently see can be pasted into your RSS reader.

Nowadays, this RSS option is usually available on websites of scientific journals. You can also subscribe to RSS feeds from news sites, blogs, or other favorite websites.
