Search Alerts

From your search results list or from the Issues page you can request notification when new content is added to the database that matches your search criteria. You may choose to have the system check for new content on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and sent you an e-mail message in html format when updates are found. Or you may subscribe to an RSS feed provided by Gale and have content delivered directly to you.

Requesting an E-mail Search Alert

Here's how to set up an e-mail alert:

  1. Perform a search using any of the search types to search for the information for which you want to receive alerts; you may use any type of search criteria, including search limiters
  2. On the results list, click the Create a Search Alert link
  3. To receive alert e-mails, enter your e-mail address in the Mail to field (only one e-mail address allowed)
  4. Use the default Alert Name or enter your own text
  5. Select the Frequency in which you want the system to check for new content based on your search criteria: Daily, Weekly or Monthly
  6. Click the Save button to submit your request

You will be sent an e-mail message to confirm that your request has been received. Then the system will check for new content based on the frequency you selected. The alert e-mail will contain individual links up to the first 20 new content items plus a link to the full results set.

All e-mails you receive will contain a link allowing you to opt out of the alert so that you no longer receive future alerts.
