HeinOnline Tip: Article Email Alerts

Leave a comment

HeinOnline has implemented a new feature to help you keep track of articles on a given subject or written by a particular author. The new Similar Article Email Alerts feature notifies subscribers:

  1. When new material for this author is added to HeinOnline
  2. When new articles in HeinOnline cite this author’s articles
  3. When articles are accessed on HeinOnline each month
  4. When similar articles are published on this author’s works

Whether you want to keep track of an author’s publications or discover new articles that are similar to those written by your favourite author, HeinOnline has you covered.

To set up Similar Article Email Alerts, go to the author’s profile page. You can do this by plugging the author’s name into the search bar. On the results page, find an entry written by your author and click their hyperlinked name. This will bring you to their author profile page. Here is an example of Alice Woolley’s author page:

You will notice a bell icon at the top right of the page. Click this icon to set your preferences and subscribe with your email.

For more information on this feature, see HeinOnline’s Tip of the Week.
