Scopus alerting system updating on October 2nd

on Mon, 10/02/2017 - 15:00

Today, on October 2nd, Scopus alerts are migrating to a new system. During this time the “edit” and “create” functions will be deactivated for less than 24 hours. You will still continue to receive alert emails, but will not be able to create new alerts or modify existing alerts for that window of time. A message box will appear on the alerts page to notify users of the brief downtime.

What does this mean for alert recipients after the migration?

  • Your alerts will appear with a refreshed template, offering a cleaner look and feel.
  • The email sender address will change to: rather than
  • Alerts will display the first 20 documents instead of 25
  • Some of the rarely used alerting frequency options will be removed
  • For approximately one month after the migration (October 2 thru early November), it’s possible you may receive alerts from both systems

As an example, here is what the new Search Alert email will look like:
