New email alerts in Google Scholar

New in Google Scholar : email alerts of newly indexed hits that match a previous search.

Simply do a search, get your results and if you want update alerts emailed to you in future, simply click the "Envelope" icon top left.

- alerts flag newly indexed items, not necessarily newly published
- alerts work with Advanced Search
- alerts work with "Cited By" so you can be alerted to any further citations of a given item

Alerts work for proper names, keywords, phrases but they do not work for journal names so unfortunately cannot be used to get tables of contents at present.
