How to Keep Current

Use the "alert" features to keep up to date on your topic. 

Note: results from email alerts and rss feeds should be used while on-campus as the full-text links in the alerts/feeds will not work from off-campus; to access the full text of articles/journal alerts from off-camus, use the Libraries' Journal Title Lookup. 


Article-Indexing Databases:

  • (math, physics, computer science, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, and statistics)
  • Web of Science
    Will send email notification if a specific article has been recently cited.
    • Once in the Web of Science, find the article for which you'd like to receive citation alerts,
    • Click on the title of the article to go to the full record page,
    • In the right hand column, click on the "Create Citation Alert" button,
    • Log-in (or click on the link to "Register" in the left-hand column)
    • A RSS feed option is available.
    • To remove the alert, click on the "My Citation Alerts" link in the upper right corner of the screen, then click on the "Modify Settings" button, then click in the "Remove from list" box for that alert, and submit changes.


  • ASU Library Catalog
    Instructions for creating an alert are being developed. This feature is not yet available on the new system.
  • BooksinPrint
    Will run a search, once a month, on newly released titles that match your search criteria.
  • WorldCat
    Does not have an alert feature as of this time.


Many journals have some form of alerting service, but it varies from publisher to publisher and sometimes even titles from the same publisher may have different features available.  Most journals will have at least an email alerting service for when the latest issue of the title is published.

To find out what features are available for a specific journal, use the Libraries' Journal Title Lookup to get to the journal's web site, and then explore the site.  

Journal Publishers with alerting services include but are not limited to:
