New “Alerts” Feature for Odysci Users

We have just launched the “Alerts” service for Odysci users and we hope you like it.


How does it work?
Whenever there is new information about you or about an article you wrote or follow you will get an email from us notifying you about it (Don’t worry, you can easily configure the types of alerts you get, or none if you prefer).

This new information that can trigger alerts are:

  1. A new article you recently wrote/co-wrote is added to our database
  2. An article you wrote/co-wrote is cited by another paper (which was recently added to our database)
  3. An article you follow is cited by another paper (which was recently added to our database)
  4. A new comment was posted by another user about an article you wrote/co-wrote or follow
  5. An article you wrote/co-wrote or follow was recently followed by other users

In your profile page you can configure the types of Alerts you want to receive (or none if you prefer). Alerts are configured to be sent by default to be on a weekly basis.


An example of the “Alerts” email that you would receive is shown below:

Citation Report for Articles You Wrote or Co-Wrote
2 articles you wrote/co-wrote were recently cited by other paper(s):

Citation Report for Articles You Follow (excluding your own)
6 articles you follow were recently cited by other paper(s) (only 5 listed below):


We hope you find these alerts useful. If you have any suggestions about these or other interesting alerts you would like to have, please let us know by writing comments below or emailing us at feedback@odysci.com.

Thanks!

Odysci Team
