Personal database accounts

About personal database accounts 

A personal database account allows the user to save and retrieve search histories and organise resources. The account is created from within the database. Most databases allow for the creation of an account.  

How to use personal database accounts 

Most databases allow you to:  

  • run automatic searches daily, weekly, monthly, or whenever best suits you 
  • set up alerts for content related to your research topic 
  • retrieve your search history and adjust accordingly 
  • stay up to date with the latest trends and research. 

Some databases also let you set up citation alerts, to inform you when an article has been cited.
