Journal Alerts save valuable research time, and can be set up to provide automatic e-mail notification whenever a new issue of a particular journal becomes available in the EBSCO interface you are using. Please follow the instructions below to set up your own journal alert:


Step 1. Sign in EBSCO

Before setting up a journal alert, you need to sign in after accessing EBSCO via Databases A-Z on XJTLU Library homepage.


Step 2. Locate the journal

There’re two methods to locate the journal that you need to set up an alert. The first one is to find the publication directly.

(Note: By Clicking , you may access the Journal Alert window directly to set your alert parameters.)


You can also locate the journal when reading the detailed record page of an article.


Step 3. Create an alert

From the journal's Publication Details Screen, you may find the E-mail Alert link.


The Journal Alert window appears, with the Subject and E-mail from address automatically filled in.


Note: Before your alert expires, you will be e-mailed and given the opportunity to renew it.
