Help Topic: Comments alerts

Some Cambridge journals are encouraging readers to respond online to individual articles.

If a journal is accepting comments in this way, a link to 'Comments' will be displayed to the right of the article details in the table of contents or search results listing. (Note: this feature is not available for First View articles).

Note: to have access to this feature you need to be a registered user and have logged in and have access to the full text of the article via either a library, society or personal subscription.

Clicking on 'Comments' brings up a number of text boxes. These allow you to submit a comment and set up an email alert to let you know when any new comments are posted online.

To set up email comments alerts for a particular article, tick the check box and click 'Submit'.

Once you have set up some comments alerts, you can view and make changes to them by selecting 'Comment Alerts' from your 'My CJO links' drop-down menu. This will take you to a new page displaying the articles you have selected. Next to each article a drop-down menu allows you to set the frequency with which you want Cambridge Journals Online to check for comments. Your options are weekly or monthly. You also have the option to turn off the alert (and, later, to come back and re-instate it) or to delete it altogether.

To set up comments alerts for all articles in a particular journal, use the 'Content Alerts' menu, accessible from your 'My CJO links' menu.
