It is a good idea to save your search to run it again at a later date and so you have a record of your search strategy. You can also set up an alert, to receive an email when new articles matching your search criteria are added to the database.
You can create an alert for any journal, magazine or newsletter available within the ACM Digital Library to get an email when new content is added. The easiest way to do this is to use the default home page search box (this search box is also on the top right hand corner of all ACM Digital Library webpages) for the name of the publication you want. When this starts to auto populate, click on the journal you want.
This will take you to the archive for the journal - click on the most recent issue, which will take you to the home page for the journal.
On the home page there will be an option to get alerts for the journal, magazine or newsletter.
Alternatively you can browse on the list of journals to find the item you want, or click through from an item record for a journal article and click on the publication name to access the journal home page.
You can also sign up to get an email when a new item is added to ACM Digital Library which cites a particular paper or other item. Search for the item you want or select any item in your search results list. Click into that item's record, and click on the Get Citation Alerts button (the bell icon).
You can set up an alert for conferences when new proceedings are added. To do this, find the conference you want. You can either browse through the list of conferences or use the search box. For browsing the list of conferences, there are two tabs on the Conferences page that provide differing conference lists, ACM Proceedings or ICPS Proceedings/. The default landing tab is the ACM Proceedings tab. There is also a tab for upcoming conferences.
The search box will not usually take you to the conference home page, but you can click on the name of the conference proceeding on any relevant item in the search results to get to the conference home page. On the home page, click Get Alerts for this Conference.
