From Chapter 4[edit]

Current Awareness: Auto-Alerts[edit]

An impressive variety of current awareness services, or auto-alerts, are available to help chemists stay current on the published research literature. Auto-alerts allow you to save a search specific to your research interests, have it automatically re-run each time new citations are added to a database or publisher website, and have the new citations delivered to you, as an email or an RSS feed. Other names for these services include: email alerts, and SDI (selective dissemination of information).

Auto-alerts were formerly available only from subscription article/research databases, but are now also available from: publishers, Google Scholar, and additional less formal (and generally less comprehensive) options including: Twitter feeds; user communities or social networks; podcasts; YouTube Channels; smart phone and tablet apps; and search widgets.

To identify the auto-alert(s) that best meet their needs, researchers need to be aware of the different types that are available:

  • Search Alerts: Allow you to save a search on a: topic, substance, reaction, author, or journal name (options vary by database and publisher). Your search is rerun either when new records are added, or at an interval you specify.
  • TOC (Table of Contents) Alerts: Send you the table of contents when a new journal issue is published (also called journal issue alerts).
  • Citation Alerts: Notify you when article(s) you specify are cited.

The Search Alerts, TOC Alerts, and Citation Alerts sections below list options for creating various types of auto-alerts using chemistry and general databases, major chemistry publishers, and Google Scholar. Each section indicates what each type of alert is Best for, and which option is the Best choice, for setting up an alert (database, publisher, etc.) Within each section, the most robust options are listed first. Each entry includes: a brief description; the provider’s name for the alert; links to web pages or PDFs that explain how to set up each type of alert; coverage; requirements for access; and available formats.

SEARCH ALERTS[edit]

Allow you to save a search on a: topic, substance, reaction, author, or journal name (options vary by database and publisher). Your search is rerun either when new records are added, or at an interval you specify.

Best for: staying current on a topic, substance/reaction or author
Best choice: article/research databases, significant publishers in your field

Database Search Alerts[edit]

Most databases listed here require subscription (paid) access, which is generally provided through your academic institution library or employer. For those with access, a free login/account is usually required to use the alerts service.

Chemistry Databases:[edit]
SciFinder: Keep Me Posted (KMP): KMP Alerts can be set up for both topics and substances.
Coverage: SciFinder indexes all of chemistry and chemical aspects of other fields and includes journal articles, patents, dissertations, meeting abstracts, and additional sources. This makes SciFinder Alerts the most robust option for staying current on the chemical literature.
Required: Access to SciFinder, personal login (a prerequisite for SciFinder access).
How To Set Up:
How To Create A Keep Me Posted Alert (PDF)

General Databases:[edit]
Web of Science: My Saved Searches: Any search that can be done in Web of Science (WOS) can be saved and turned into a Search Alert. Options include: topic, title, author, publication (i.e., journal) name, and others. Both WOS and Current Contents are products of Thomson Reuters (formerly ISI) and use the same Web of Knowledge platform, so the process of setting up Search Alerts for these databases is very similar.
Coverage: Web of Science indexes all academic disciplines. As such, it covers fewer chemistry journals than SciFinder, but provides a broader focus of all of science.
Required: Access to Web of Science, register for personal login (sign in).
