Can I create search and journal alerts in EBSCO Discovery Service?

Yes, when using EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS), search and journal alerts can be created for EBSCOhost content. However,  the alert is set for the EDS profile, not for a specific EBSCOhost database.  Therefore the alert will filter through all content available in EDS, not just resources contained in a particular EBSCOhost database. 

When using EBSCOhost Integrated Search (EHIS) in conjunction with EDS, Alerts are not available for external (non-EBSCO) sources.
