Create a GoogleScholar alert

To be briefed regularly on what is happening in our fields, what I have done is to set up a GoogleScholar search on keywords I am interested in. I get emailed daily. 

The process is pretty simple: 

  1. Be logged into your Google account
  2. Run a search in GoogleScholar using Boolean search terms (e.g. Leadership+Shared+"New Zealand"; this will return any new entries which contain ALL of these terms; Leadership, Shared, New Zealand will return any entries which contain any one of the four; "Leadership Shared New Zealand" will return only those which contain these four words in order). 
  3. On the left-hand side of the page you will see a link beside an envelope icon, "Create alert". Click the link
  4. On the Alerts page, set up how many options you want to see each day (I set this for 20), and double check that the email is correct
  5. Click "Create Alert"

Additionally, we can review our settings in our GoogleScholar profile here:
