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.
