Research Impact Challenge: Alerts : Keeping Informed


Wednesday, February 17th
Alerts: Keeping Informed


Wednesday's Challenges focus on the theme of Alerts: Keeping Informed. They focus on being impactful in an indirect way - by staying on top of your field. Staying on the cutting edge of your discipline can help you find unexpected opportunities for collaboration and spark your own creativity. 

In today's Challenges, we'll show you how to create alerts that will send information directly to our inbox on key scholars in your field and on new publications in your field of research. We'll also look at how to determine who's citing you - get notified when someone discusses or shares your work online.
