Altmetric at Stirling: Save searches to reuse

Save searches to reuse

Once you've created a useful search strategy to find a group of relevant articles, you can save this search strategy and reuse it again any time.

Enter your search. Then:

  • Select the Save Search button under the main search box (do this even if the search found no results – going forward you want to track future mentions of articles)

  • The search is automatically added to your Saved Searches folder on the left hand side.

  • Click on the Save Searches icon to see your saved search strategy

  • Each time you click on the title of a saved search - this will re-run the search, with the same filters applied, on the most recent data in Altmetric.

Within the Saved Searches folder you can also choose to receive an email report with the latest search results by clicking on the Daily, Weekly or Monthly button next to the saved search.
