My Cited Articles List

Keep up-to-date with the information that matters to you. By setting up search and citation alerts via email or RSS feeds, you can stay up-to-date on recently published research and see who is citing your work.

When you create a citation alert, Thomson Reuters notifies you by e-mail whenever a new publication cites a previously published work. Alerts are active for one year. You may renew an alert at any time. Renew all your citation alerts at one time by clicking the Renew All button.

You create a citation alert by clicking the Create Citation Alert button from a Full Record page within any product database in Web of Knowledge. This button will only appear if you have a subscription to Web of Science.

For each record on the list, you will find the following information.


Times Cited

The Times Cited number shows the number of citing articles currently in the database. Click the number to see the list of citing articles.


Article Title

Each title is linked to the Full Record of the work.


RSS Feed

To set up an RSS feed:

  1. Click the RSS Feed button to go to a Web page that displays the name of the selected journal.

  2. Click the Subscribe to this feed link to open a dialog box.

  3. From the Subscribe to this Feed dialog, click the Subscribe button.

Your RSS reader will automatically report new citing articles. You do not need to renew the alert in order to continue to receive RSS feeds.



This column shows the status of the e-mail alert. If the status is Off, and you wish to turn it on:

  1. Click the Modify Settings button.

  2. Select the Send Me Citation Alert check box of a title.

If the status is On, the expiration date will display. Click the Renew button to renew the alert for one year beyond the displayed date.

Note: Alerting is not available for All Databases searches in Web of Knowledge.


Renew All Button

Search alerts have three states: On Off, and Expired.

Click the Renew All button to renew all On and Expired alerts and to renew the expiration date of active alerts. Once you click the button, the Alerting status for Expired alerts changes to On and the expiration date is six months in the future from the current date.

Note: Alerting is not available for All Databases searches in Web of Knowledge.
