Journal Alerts

You can set up a journal alert in EBSCO, Gale/Infotrac, or Project Muse to receive an email with links to full text articles, each time a new issue is available.

From the library home page, choose Periodical List, and search for a journal title.

Choose an EBSCO, Gale/Infotrac, or Project Muse database from the ones listed underneath the journal name.

In an EBSCO database (Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, PsycARTICLES, etc.) :

At the top right of the middle screen section, click on "Alert / Save / Share". Then choose "Create an Alert".

You will need a "My EBSCOhost account" to enable email delivery. If you do not already have one, select "I'm a new user" to set up an account.

Once you are into your "My EBSCOhost" account, follow the directions for setting the journal alert or editing the RSS Feed.

In most Gale/Infotrac databases (Expanded Academic ASAP, Academic OneFile, General OneFile, etc.):

Email Alert:

Click "Search Alert/RSS Feed" icon at the right of the center section of the screen.

Fill in your email address and select a frequency. You will receive an email alert for the journal whether or not a new issue is available. (The RSS feed feature below is more intelligent and will notify you only when a new issue is available.)

RSS Feed:

Copy the Feed URL at the bottom of the "Create Journal Alert" page and add it to your RSS feed reader. You will receive an RSS feed alert each time a new issue is available in the Gale database.

Project Muse

On the right side of a "journal page" in Project Muse, you can sign up for a journal alert or RSS Feed. When on campus, you can link to the articles from a Project Muse journal alert email. But if you are off campus, you will not be able to read the articles. However, you can go to Periodical List, search for the journal title, choose the Project Muse database, and you will be authenticated to access articles.
