Help Topic: Citation alert

This feature allows you to receive emails telling you when an article you are interested in has been cited in another publication.

To use this feature you need to have registered and logged in.

You can set up citation alerts for a particular article from either the article's abstract or - if you have access to the full text - from the HTML.

On the right-hand side of the page you will see a grey 'Article Menu' button. To expand the menu, click on the arrow and then under 'Options' click on 'Citation Alert'.

This will take you to another page called 'My Citation Alerts'. The article you have selected will be displayed at the bottom of the page. Next to the article a drop-down menu allows you to set the frequency with which you want Cambridge Journals Online to check for citations. Your options are weekly or monthly. Enter your email address into the 'Email address' text box and click the 'Update' button at the top or bottom of the page. You also have the option to turn off the alert (and, later, to come back and re-instate it) or to delete it altogether.

Once you have added an article to 'My citation alerts' you will receive regular emails informing you if the article has been cited elsewhere. The email will include full citation details (title, author, journal, volume, issue, page number) of the citing article and a link through to it.
