According to Google (direct quote):

How Google Alerts work

“By creating a Google Alert, you can get email notifications any time Google finds new results on a topic that interests you.

For example, you could get updates about a product you like, find out when people post something about you on the web, or keep up with news stories.”

For our purposes for research for a dissertation or graduate thesis, you can set up a Google alert to find out when scholars post information about your topic (problem and purpose statement).
