Scopus Tutorial: How to save searches and set alerts


Welcome to a Scopus
video tutorial on how to set alerts
and save searches. In this example,
you are looking for articles about citizen science
and whales. You want to be notified
when new articles on this topic are published. First, make sure
you are logged in to Scopus with your individual account. This is required to set alerts
and save searches. To save time repeating
this search in the future, select the disc icon
in the upper left of the screen to save your search. In the dialog box, edit the name
for your search if you wish, and select the Save button. This search is now saved. In addition to saving
the search, you can set an alert to receive
new results on this topic as they are published. Select the bell icon
in the upper left of the screen to set your alert. In the dialog box,
confirm the name of your alert and your email address,
and set the desired frequency. Select the Set Alert button. You can also receive alerts
via an RSS feed by clicking
on the RSS feed icon and then following
the onscreen prompts that are specific
to your preferred RSS reader. It’s also possible
to save searches, set alerts and set RSS feeds
from the Search History list. Select Search on the top menu. Then go to the right
of the searches you have run to choose an option. If you wish to view,
edit or delete your saved searches or alerts, click on the menu icon in the upper right corner
of the screen. Select My Scopus and then
Saved Searches or Alerts. To check if there are
new results for a saved search since the last time
you ran the search, select Saved Searches, and navigate
to your desired search. Next to the Date last run,
select the refresh results icon.
