Setting up a Google Scholar Content Alert
Once you have found results for a well targeted Google Scholar search, you can set up an Alert so every time new content is added in your research area, you receive an email notice.
From the search results page, scroll down to the bottom of the left navigation bar
Click the Create an Alert link
To make sure the Alert will be going to the correct email address, Click the Change Email tab and enter your preferred email address.
The name of the email Alert sent to you will automatically be your search statement. Click in the box and edit if you'd like the Alert to be called something else
You have the option of checking a box so Google Scholar will include additional less relevant results, i.e. materials that Google Scholar found that are close but missing some of one or more of your search parameters. This has the potential to increase your Alerts, and include more extraneous results that you may not want.
