Google Scholar Now Includes E-mail Alerts

Researchers using Google Scholar may now receive e-mail alerts reflecting their search parameters. At the top left corner of every search results page is an icon resembling an envelope. Click the icon, enter your email address, and click the "create alert" button. This is a quick and easy way to receive citations from Google Scholar on the subject(s) of your choice, without having to make repeated visits to the search engine and entering the same search criteria.
