What is a search alert? How do I set one up?

Search alerts will provide you with a weekly email alert with any new DeepDyve results related to a saved query.

There are two ways to set up a search alert:

From the Search Results page

After you do a search, click the Search Alerts button at the top of the screen:

...to turn on a search alert for that term:

In My Library there is a section for Saved Searches:

All searches you do on DeepDyve (or in PubMed and Google Scholar if you are using the Chrome extension) are saved here automatically. If you see an envelope icon next to a search term, it is set up to receive search alerts. To adjust the alert or turn one on for another term in saved searches, click the gear icon next to each term. Click the "Edit Search Alerts" button to see all your alerts:

Cancelling a search alert

To cancel a search alert:

  1. Go to the Saved Searches tab in My Library
  2. Click on "Edit Search Alerts"
  3. Click the gear icon next to the search alert you want to delete
  4. Click "Turn off email alerts"

That's it! You can always set up the search alert again by starting a new search and either turning it on from the search results or going back into saved searches.
