HOWTO: Google Scholar email alerts

I’ve explained before how to use Google Scholar to do some of the heavy lifting for you when doing academic work. In this post I want to show briefly how you can get email alerts on  specific search terms. It’s easy! :-)

Once you’ve done that, simply fill in the boxes:

You can access Google Scholar at http://scholar.google.com

***BONUS*** I found out after writing this post that the Google Scholar team have launched their official blog. Their first post covers what I’ve mentioned above. But I still think showing rather than telling is better… :-p
