Setting up a WoS Account

If you set up an account in the Web of Science, you will be able to save searches; set up email alerts when something new is published on a topic of interest; revisit your previous search history (if you have saved any) and more.

To set up an account, click on Sign In on the right of the very top bar on any page. Then click on Register and follow the instructions.

Once you have an account, Sign In whenever you are in the Web of Science. To save a search you like, click on Search History then click on Save History. Next, name your search and add an optional description.

If you want to get email alerts when something new is published on your topic, click in the Send Me Email Alerts box. (Email alerts are not available for the All Databases setting.)

Note that you can combine searches; delete any of them at any time; set up email alerts or disable them; and generally manage your Search History as you like.
