Meeting Management: Setting up Journal Alerts

This guide has been created in partnership with NSCC Library Services to provide access to resources on the topic of Meeting Management.

What is an Alert?

Most journals and databases offer an Alert service. These are designed to keep you up-to-date with information about the latest journal publications by sending you automatic e-mail notifications whenever new search results become available.
