Most databases will allow you to save a search strategy and set an alert. Alerts can take several forms, but all provide a method of updating by sending automatic alerts of new results matching a search strategy. It is generally necessary to register and create a Personal Account in each database prior to creating an Alert. Alerts can take the form of Journal and Saved Search Alerts.
Journal Table of Contents (ToC) alerts: many online journals will provide email alerts on the table of contents for each newly published issue. A Journal Table of Contents alert is used to alert you when a new issue of a journal is published. It is necessary to register for a personal account in each database where you have a ToC. ToC alerts can be set up for email or RSS.This video describes how to create a journal alert.
