Keeping Up-to-date by Creating Alerts
PubMed’s Automatic E-Mailed Updates feature enables you to create a search to be run automatically in PubMed, or in any other Entrez database available from NCBI. The results are sent to your e-mail address. Whenever you perform a search in PubMed, you can use My NCBI to create an alert (Automatic E-Mailed Update).
To create an automatic e-mail update you must be signed into My NCBI. To sign in or to register, click Sign In at the top, right of the PubMed screen, then click on Register for an account.
After signing in and running your search, click on Save Search.
You can rename your search before you save it.
Choose your preferences and click Save at the bottom of the page.
Note: In order to see the full text links (UC-eLinks) in your updates, first open another PubMed window, using this url: http://uclibs.org/PID/17708 (or use the link to PubMed from the Bioscience Library home page).
