Keeping up-to-date with research - setting up alerts

Most research databases (e.g. ProQuest Central, Science Direct and Scopus) allow you to create alerts that will push information to you based on a search you've set up previously. This could be a search for relevant  terms/keywords, an author name or a journal specialising in your research area.


Found a citation to an article but cannot get to the full text?
