Q: Is there a way I can be notified when new articles in my area of interest are published in Google Scholar?
Answered by: Kelly Blanchat
 
Google Scholar can inform you of new articles in two ways:
  1. Google Scholar Alerts. From Google Scholar, select "Settings" from the drop-down menu on the left and select "Alerts." Search for a topic of interest (e.g., "M Theory") to preview the search results. To confirm the alert, select "Create alert" and Google will periodically email new articles that match your search criteria. To modify an alert, go back to your account settings to remove or revise the criteria.
  2. My Updates. If you have a Google Scholar profile, Google Scholar will attempt to mine your academic publications, including their bibliographies. "My Updates" will show you recently-published literature that Google Scholar considers similar to the content that you have published and the resources that you have used.
