Google Scholar Alerts are a great way to stay current on emerging research related to a specific topic. You can create them by using keywords from your research to build a search, and Google Scholar will email you with the newest resources being published on your topic. Below are the steps to set up your own Google Scholar Alerts.
Set up Alerts
You can use an existing Google Account (e.g., Fisher student account) to create Google Scholar Alerts. Or, you can use any active email account. The video below will guide you through creating Google Scholar Alerts of your own. Note that there is no narration for this video.
Pro Tip: Use Boolean searching to build stronger Google Alerts and retrieve more relevant resources.
Managing Google Scholar Alerts
You can manage your Alerts, including deleting or creating new Alerts from the menu. Use the menu to access your Alerts.
Find the Alerts option on the menu. Select Alerts.
From the Google Scholar Alerts page you can delete current Alerts or create new ones.
