Alerts and notifcations are forms of information that are pushed to you, based on your academic or scholarly interests, typically to your email inbox or social media news feeds. Alerts can be related to journal content, article database searches, new blog entries, and websites. A "subscription" or personal account is required to receive most alerting services.
