From Ingenta

This vendor provides articles online and therefore offers an up-to-date database of citations to 30,000+ journals, including most women's studies journals. To set up an alert, you must sign up online. Use the Instructions on the UW Parkside Library website for setting up email alerts for new tables of contents from whichever journal(s) you specify. You might also be able to set up alerts to new articles on subject(s) you specify; and/or create saved searches that you re-run whenever you want to do so, either in their entirety or only showing what's new since you last ran the search. Process for email alerts is also explained in Ingenta's InTouch Alerting Service (button is on the "New Issue alerts" page). Saving searches requires running a search, then selecting "save"and a folder choice on the "Search History" page. Then from the "Saved Searches" page, you may select "Create Alert." How you retrieve the actual articles will vary -- some may be on campus, some may need to be requested.
