The Citation Alerts Usage page shows usage statistics for the citation alerts purchased by your institution. (Statistics for search alerts and table of contents alerts are provided in separate reports.) The report is divided into two parts. At the top of the page are search alerts totals. At the bottom is a pie chart that illustrates the proportion of available alerts used by each product.
Citation Alerts Totals
Citation alerts totals show statistics for the following variables. The totals aggregate the numbers for the same variables in all products in your Web of Science subscription.
- Alerts Limit

If you elected to include individual user details on the Select a Report page, the report identifies for each alert:
- Alert Creator
- Citation. The first twenty-five characters of the title of the cited article.
- Alert Recipient
- Expiration Date
Citation Alerts Chart
The pie chart at the bottom of the page shows the proportion of alerts used in relation to the total number of alerts purchased. "Free" alerts are unused alerts.
Note: No pie chart will appear if you elected to include individual user details on the Select a Report page.
