Ganesan, P and Jayakanth, F and Rajashekar, TB (1998) Automatic extraction and e-mail delivery of citation data from SCI CD-ROM database. In: Library Science with a Slant to Documentation and Information Studies, 35 (4). pp. 213-220.

Science Citation Index (SCI) is a key database used by the research community in the Indian Institute of Science. As this database was not available for access on the campus network, its offline usage was sub-optimal. To improve its usage we developed a profile-based e-mail alerting service called Citation Alert Service. Every time an update database disc is received, the system automatically delivers, to the e-mail address of individual faculty, details of his/her recent research papers indexed in the update disc, and papers that are citing his/her publications. Key issues to be considered in the system design are unattended processing of the update disc, and e-mail delivery of downloaded records. We discuss in detail the design and implementation aspects of the system. E-mail offers a convenient, fast and inexpensive mode of operating profile-based alerting services.
