We’ve recently updated Web of Science alerting to make it more flexible and easier to use.
Note: It’s still possible to set an alert for any active email address, or multiple email addresses, but users will need Web of Science access to see all the records in the alert.

Saving a search is a way to return to that search as many times as needed to complete your work. Web of Science stores the search statement you use in your personal profile, so that you can always return to it and edit, or rerun it against different time periods or parameters.

Your profile also allows you to save alerts that notify you of updates in the data. There are three kinds of alerts:
