What are the School of Engineering faculty publishing?
When the School of Engineering faculty aren't hard at work in laboratories and classrooms, they are busy getting their research published. Now there is an easy way to keep up to date with their latest publications. With the recent addition of Scopus, you can easily create a news feed of what is being published by the School of Engineering faculty:
You can also find the most recent faculty publications on any Library News page, just look to your right under database alerts. Faculty can find a more extensive list on the news section of the Faculty Services Guide.
Making a customized feed in Scopus is easy. First conduct a search based on keywords, an author, or affiliation. If you get too many results you can use the limiters on the left hand side to refine your search. Once you are satisfied with your results, look for the RSS icon and click "set feed" (see below):
Next, you'll name your feed, hit continue, and then simply subscribe by clicking the feed reader you currently use (not familiar with RSS? read our RSS Guide). Scopus also gives you the option of creating an HTML feed which you can embed on your own website (like the faculty publications sample above). For those of you who prefer email, you can opt to create email alerts instead.
