“I get sent a lot of stuff from various search engines.  Most send too much that is not relevant for me to have time to wade through it all.  Being sent 2-3 articles from good quality sources is really useful”

“Love the service it’s a huge help to save time accessing new information and things I hadn’t thought of”

What it is: our targeted current awareness service. Whenever we find high impact publications in your area, we’ll let you know.

Why use it: to see the latest high-level evidence in your field

How it works: we create your KnowledgeShare profile to be as broad as you need or more specific—whichever suits you. For example, you could receive everything published on obstetrics or limit down to just receive things related to gestational diabetes.

The Content: KnowledgeShare contains policy documents and a wide range of summarised evidence so that you will not be inundated with primary research articles.

How do I register?  You can register by logging into with your NHS OpenAthens account. Don’t have an OpenAthens account?  You can set one up here.

Creating Personalised Alerts: Login with your Athens password and find your profile page by clicking on your name on top right. Scroll down to find Journal alerts and click edit. This page allows you to search for journals. If you can’t find the desired journal contact library staff who can check if the journal is available to upload.
