Alerting services

Alerting services, also called current awareneess services, can be sent from publishers, article-indexing databases, or 3rd parties that combines these sources.

Many databases provide email and RSS alerting services to highlight new content as it is added to the database. These kinds of alerts can be more useful than publisher-based alerts when your research topic is covered across multiple journals or is multi-disciplinary.
