Databases, journals, and Google Scholar allow you to set up alerts based on author names or keywords to help researchers stay current in their subject areas. This is done by entering your email address along with your selected keywords to receive a notification any time a new article is published that matches your criteria. One word of caution: while search alerts are effective tools, they can be overwhelming if you create too many, so be selective.
