Google alerts

Google alerts is a tracking facility provided by Google. You can track people if their name is sufficiently unique or terms or key phrases that relate to your research interests.

Google has a set of useful advice re using alerts with Google scholar.

You can decide how often and in what format the alert results are delivered to your email address.

Obviously you'll need to be very careful with deciding the search terms or you will fill your mailbox with junk! You can always try out an alert and if it generates too much stuff it can always be deleted.
