ISI Web of Science Alerting Service

Register space Instructions space Journal Lists: Arts & Humanities Citation Index,
Science Citation Index, Social Sciences Citation Index

Alerts may be created based on stored keyword or journal title searches or when an article you have selected is cited. Alerts created based on keyword or journal title searches will be run automatically once per week or month (your choice). Any new citations in Web of Science matching the search will be sent to the email address specified in the profile. Alerts based on a particular article will automatically send the bibliographic information of a new article that cites your selected article when it's added to Web of Science.

Any OSU student, faculty, or staff member can create their own profile, and the profile information is stored on ISI servers, not on the individual's local computer. Alerts are in effect for 6 months from date of creation. Prior to the expiration of a given alert, the subscriber will receive two reminder/notification messages asking if they wish to renew the alert automatically.
