Citation alerts for authors

Elsevier is now offering an automatic, free service to authors:  By publishing in an Elsevier journal, the author will be notified, when his/her article has been cited when the citing articles have been indexed in Scopus. (Self-citations are not included.)

The service is called CiteAlert.  Here is the press release:

A broader, similar service is been available to all Scopus subscribers, of which Princeton is one.  On every page that displays an article’s bibliographic data and abstract, there is a link at the right that allows for subscribing to a citation alert.
