Search Strategy and Alert Services

Being able to quickly create a robust search strategy is a vital part of the research process. But sometimes, you need a helping hand.

This is where the Dialog Solutions Search Strategy and Alert Services can help. We can work with you to create and maintain your search strategies and alerts to ensure you’re getting the results you need.

Search Strategy Services

Let our expert team help you create search strategies that deliver exactly the research you’re looking for. Whether you want additional expertise, need a search created quickly, or just don’t have a big enough team, we’re here for you.

We can make ad-hoc searches for any topic as well as regulated industry searches (such as pharmacovigilance). If you already have existing search strategies, we can make sure they’re regularly maintained to provide you with the most accurate results.

Our team builds searches using the Dialog® search syntax. These searches are performed in your Dialog account, where you can approve and monitor the strategies we create. No matter how you choose to work with us, you have complete control over every aspect of the process.

Alert Services

If you use Dialog®Alerts Manager, you’ll know how important this feature is, and how vital it is to keep your alerts up to date. The alerts services team can help you with this by importing, creating and maintaining your alerts in Dialog Alerts Manager.  

Alerts Creation

We can translate your alerts from other content providers (such as STN or Ovid) into the Dialog syntax or create a Dialog search syntax from scratch. No matter what industry or search needs, we can deliver an alert that ensures you get the latest publications when they appear.

We have particular expertise in working with pharmaceutical companies that need to track their products for drug safety reporting.

Alerts Maintenance

Alerts need regular maintenance. This can either be from periodic database thesaurus updates (with Medline® or Embase® for example) or due to periodic analysis of the volume of articles retrieved from each alert.

With the help of our team and the bulk alert edit feature in Dialog Alerts Manager we can help you keep your alerts running smoothly and accurately.

A Flexible Partnership

Working with us for your search and alert management needs is simple. We have a transparent pricing model for our search and alert services, ensuring you know exactly what you’re getting. If you need more of our time, that can be added onto the existing relationship.
