You can now sign up to receive email alerts when new articles appear in your favorite journals, using our Library Access extension. This way, you receive all subscriptions from one party, and you can manage all alerts in a single location.
Most journals offer to email you when a new issue is published. If you sign up for many of those email alerts, chances are these will arrive from different providers, using different email subjects and sender addresses. It can be hard to keep track of all your subscriptions that way. This is where our journal alerts come in.
To sign up, go to Google Scholar and search for your journal. If you have Library Access extension installed, you should see a “Subscribe to ToC Alert” button on the right side of your screen. Click the button to sign up for Table of Contents alerts. If no button is displayed, it means there is no alert option available for that particular journal.

On the next screen, enter your email address and follow the instructions. You will receive a confirmation email after subscribing. This mail includes a link to access all your current subscriptions.
Whenever the service detects new articles published in one of your journals, it will send you an email. The email contains links to the journals with new content. Emails are sent by “JournalAlert”, from the address email@example.com. You may wish to add this to your address book or allowed list to prevent mails ending up in your spam folder.
Alerts are linked to the email address you used when subscribing. To see a list of your current subscriptions, click the “My Subscriptions” link in any of the emails.
