Web of Science Alerts

Web of Science Alerts

WOS Alerts enables you to find out how often your work has been cited, as well as to allow you to stay up to date on the impact of your published research. This powerful feature is accessible via the ISI Web of Knowledge homepage, where you can log on, create and access a personalized homepage.

From the ISI Web of Knowledge homepage*, you can:

  • Set up and manage your alerts, easily keeping up with the latest relevant information in your field.
  • Link directly to the full record from an HTML alert e-mail

How to Save Search Histories and Create Alerts

You can save a search history locally to your own computer, network or the Thomson ISI server. A locally saved history can be opened and run against updates to the data. Server Save allows you to set alerts and easily open and manage your search histories. This process can be used for both General (author, topic, source or address) and Cited Reference searches.

To save a search to the Thomson ISI server, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to ISI Web of Knowledge via the link on the ISI Web of Knowledge homepage. Note: If you have not signed in you will be prompted to do so when you attempt to save your search history.
  2. Enter and execute the search query or queries you would like to save
  3. Go to the Combine Searches page or the Advanced Search page
  4. Click the Save History button.

  1. Enter a History Name and Description (optional), then click Save. This is where you can also set an alert and modify the alert settings from this page.


  2. After reviewing the Server Save Confirmation, click Done.
