Research Alerts in the Health Sciences

Why Create Research Alerts?

Setting up alerts in research databases allows you to keep up with the latest articles in the health sciences. If you have put together a complicated search with a lot of keywords, creating an alert allows you to save a search so that you can easily reproduce it later. Also, if you are working on a lengthy research project, research alerts will ensure that you do not miss any important articles while you are writing your systematic review, literature review, or dissertation.
