In Google Scholar, you can create an alert, such as "neural networks", which will inform you any time there is an article related to "neural networks". However, suppose I am interested in neural networks applied to robot navigation. Is there a way to create an alert that will only inform you when both "neural networks" and "robot navigation" appear in the paper? Essentially, I want to do a logical AND on the search terms.


Yes, all of the typical operators apply.

AND is implicit so your alert query could be "neural networks" "robot navigation"


You could create an alert for neural networks + robotics this way google will search all the results that have both words, and again if you are more interested in the robotics part you use a quotation mark like neural networks + "robotics" which brings all the results that absolutely have robotics in them.
