Elsevier permits you to register a personal account on Science Direct (which is a database of Elsevier's journal, books and series) and Scopus (an abstracting and indexing database which keeps track of lots of scholarly material). If you take the time to do so, you will be able to do things like save searches and set up email alerts. The personal account you register can be used on both of these Elsevier databases. Just use the registration link at the top of either database and activate your account.

Please note: always use the same route to Science Direct or Scopus when you sign in to your personal account. If you need help with access to your personal data, please contact the database provider directly, or email elibrary@brunel.ac.uk. The following screenshots show how personal account can be used after you sign in...
