Be notified when papers of interest are mentioned
As an author of a scholarly paper, it can often be informative to read what people are saying and writing about your work. Alternatively, if you’re a reader or a blogger, you might be interested in knowing when a paper is mentioned on the news or blogged about. By opting to receive e-mail alerts about specific papers, you can follow the stories about the research as they develop.
Receive a maximum of 1 e-mail per day
You can sign up to receive alerts pertaining to 1 or many papers. The attention surrounding multiple papers will be summarised in a single e-mail. That means that at most, Altmetric will send you one e-mail per day, as long as one of the papers has been mentioned once within 24 hours.
How to sign up for e-mail alerts
To register for e-mail alerts, navigate to the Altmetric article details page for the article of interest, and look for the “Track this article” section in the left column (see highlighted portion of left image). There, you should see a line that says “Get e-mail updates when this article is shared.”
