How to get PLOS ONE neuroscience (or any subject) articles delivered to your inbox using the PLOS “Journal Alerts” tool
Readers of this PLOS Neuro community site often ask how they can find out about new brain mapping and/or cognitive neuroscience research articles as soon as they’re published by PLOS ONE. This post explains the easy steps for doing just that.
PLOS ONE publishes hundreds of articles each week, and keeping up with it all is a challenge. Now you can tailor Journal Alerts to suit your specific research interests, saving valuable time. These new custom weekly emails will deliver the research you are interested in straight to your inbox. Here’s how to set it up:
- Login to your PLOS account (or create one)
- Click Preferences
- Navigate to Journal Alerts
- From there, expand the PLOS ONE menu:
Here, you can choose to receive a custom email alert with up to 12 subject areas. Search for a specific subject, or navigate through the drop-down taxonomy categories to find subject areas you are interested in. You will also see an option to receive all new articles via e-mail.
We hope this helps customize alerts about new PLOS ONE research to your interests, and discover research in new fields as well. We welcome your thoughts and suggestions on anything we can do to improve this experience further.
