How to set up an email alert for PubMed

For any of the above PubMed searches you can set up a regular email alert, so that information about new publications arrives in your email. 

To do this, you need an account with PubMed which  is free but requires registration. This PubMed Youtube video is a useful recent (July 2015) overview of how to set up searches and alerts.

If you are happy with any of the searches supplied we recommend that you save it and set up a regular alert. You can do this with one or more searches.
