  1. Why don’t you get a job to occupy yourself? What’s the matter with being a lollipop man? This is valuable and the wee kiddies would really love you what with the throwing the lemons at the men digging up the roads, etc. Even being baldy would work for you there. You could paint something on top of your head! Hotboy

  2. TOCs are wonderful things. A sensible title for an article (by which I mean something that tells me what it’s about) can often lead me to reading something I otherwise wouldn’t. Given that my remit is “anything that could be useful to careers guidance practitioners” I could find information almost anywhere!

  3. Hi Hazel,

    I find SO many OA journals without RSS TOC feeeds. Maybe 75% of journals added to the DOAJ don’t have RSS TOC feeds. The editors don’t know what an RSS feed is. Can’t blame them for that. We hope to get funding to work with OA publisher orgnisations to get the message across.

    JournalTOCs helps serendipitous discovery of articles of interest. We should also add search result RSS feeds.
