Wiley InterScience offers two types of alerts: saved search alerts that send new citations that match search criteria and table of content alerts that are emailed whenever a new volume or issue is added to the Wiley database.

To create search alerts, you must first create a Profile at the Wiley site. (This profile/login can also be used to access some pay-per-view content that the Virginia Tech Libraries subsidize.) Once you have successfully created a profile and logged in, you can begin creating alerts.

To create a search alert, perform a search from Wiley's homepage. At the top of your search results, use the Save search link. Then on the Saved Searches page, use the Start Alert link.

To create a table of contents alert, search or browse for journals of interest. Once you have located the journal's homepage, use Set E-Mail Alert link to add this journal to your profile. You can also subscribe to an RSS feed for this journal.

After you have received an alert...

Once you are alerted to the existence of a journal issue or article, search the Journal Title Database to see if the journal issue is available online or physically in the library. For journal articles not owned locally or available electronically, submit a request through ILLiad.

If we do have access to the article, and you have received a direct link to it while off campus, use LibX's reload page through Off Campus Sign In menu.
