Staying Up To Date

Stay up to date by setting up alerts in a variety of ways:

Table of Contents - most journal websites allow you to set an alert so that you will receive an email of the table of contents whenever a new issue is published. You will need to create an account for each journal.

Google Scholar - Create an email alert based on the search terms you enter.

PubMed - Create a My NCBI account and then when you save a search you will be given the option to have email updates sent monthly, weekly or daily.


BMJ Group and McMaster University's Health Information Research Unit are collaborating to provide you with access to current best evidence from research, tailored to your own health care interests, to support evidence-based clinical decisions.

This service is unique: all citations (from over 110 premier clinical journals) are pre-rated for quality by research staff, then rated for clinical relevance and interest by at least 3 members of a worldwide panel of practicing physicians. Here's what we offer:

  • A searchable database of the best evidence from the medical literature
  • An email alerting system
  • Links to selected evidence-based resources
