Some alternative ways to access alerts and updates from the journals you follow
Access and interact with online academic journals using Browzine.
Once journals are found, they can be stored into a personal bookshelf, or online personal library. There are some FAQs and a video with information. BrowZine then updates you with new articles published in these journals and clearly displays unread articles new to your bookshelf.
There are some useful links in the Cambridge Libraries, LibGuides – Medicine: Keeping up to date: database alerts
Here you will find information about PubMed, Medline, Embase, AMED and HMIC as well as PsycINFO, Global Health and CINAHL
Google Scholar Alerts – create email alerts for topics of interest.
Do a search for the topic of interest, e.g., “M Theory”; click the envelope icon in the sidebar of the search results page; enter your email address, and click “Create alert”. We’ll then periodically email you newly published papers that match your search criteria.
