Database alerts

Once you have completed your search in a database, you can set up Alerts to receive an email on a regular basis (eg. weekly/monthly) with a list of new articles that match your search query.  

You generally need to set up a free personal account in each relevant database - look for an ‘Alert’ or ‘Create Alert’ link on the search results screen or main search page.
