EBSCOhost Alerts

Create Table of Contents Alerts for Your Favorite Journals:

  • Use the library’s Find Online Journals to determine which database has the journal you need. You will probably want to choose one that has current fulltext.
  • If your journal is not listed, you can still set up an alert in EBSCOhost, but your alert will not include links to full text.
  • If EBSCOhost Business Source Complete, click the link and login. An EBSCOhost Publication page should appear.
  • Click Journal Alert on the upper right.
  • Sign into your EBSCOhost account. Fill out the form choosing how long you would like the alert to run, and Save. When your alert expires you will receive an email asking if you would like to renew. You can also go into your account at any time and revise your alerts.

EBSCOhost Subject Searches:

  • Log in to EBSCOhost, choose your files and enter your search terms.
  • Once you have a search you like, choose the Search History/Alerts tab.
  • Click Save Searches/Alerts and log in to My EBSCOhost.
  • Name and describe your search and choose either Saved Search or Alert.
  • If you choose Alert you will be asked for Frequency and other information.
  • Click Save when done.  Your alerts will be sent at the frequency that you indicated.

Note: Periodically you will be asked if you would like to cancel or continue the alert. You can also log into "My EBSCOhost" at any time to edit or delete alerts and saved searches.

Set Up a "My EBSCOhost" Account: 

  • Log in to EBSCOhost (link above) and click "Sign In to My EBSCOhost" (upper left).
  • Click the "I'm a new user" link. The Create a New Account Screen displays with Personal Account entered in the Account Type field.
  • Fill in the fields on the Create a New Account Screen. When you have completed the fields, click Continue.
  • If all of the information was accepted, a message appears that provides your user name and password. Click OK. You will be automatically logged in as a personal user. You should note the user name and password that you created, so that you can log in at a future session.
