I’m delighted to announce that JournalTOCs, the current awareness service for researchers and academics, now contains the latest Tables of Contents of over 20,000 scholarly journals.
JournalTOCs is the largest freely available collection of scholarly journal Tables of Contents (TOCs), and is for anyone looking for the latest and most current papers published in the scholarly literature. Researchers, academics, librarians, students, and anyone else will find it useful for keeping up-to-date.
Coverage is international, and includes journals from over 1,200 different publishers, including Elsevier, Springer, Taylor & Francis, Wiley, IEEE, Sage, Walter de Gruyter, Inderscience, RMIT, Project Muse, OUP, Emerald, CUP, Hindawi, BioMed Central, etc. Of the 20,000 journals, over 4,400 are Open Access.
At the JournalTOCs website you can search for journals by title or ISSN, or for articles by keyword, and browse for journals by subject or publisher. Free registration enables you to build your own personalised collection of journal titles and elect to receive email alerts when new journal issues are published. You can also save and export the content of TOCs. Developers can use the free API to directly access the database of articles, journals and publishers to embed TOCs in library catalogues, portals, widgets and web pages.
JournalTOCs is a free service. In addition, customised versions for institutions are available at very economic licence rates. This current awareness service solution is especially suitable for research, commercial and institutional libraries and resource centres worldwide. Free 30-day trials are available – contact firstname.lastname@example.org
I wrote about the customisable service with a super-admin-user capability here. This service now also includes customized calls of the JournalTOC API. For example, you can link to JournalTOCs in your own web catalogue or discovery system web interface, and through that link your users will be able to follow and unfollow journals in JournalTOCs as well as setup email alerts for their favourite journals, from your own website. JournalTOCs will automatically recognize your users via your customization.
More details about the customisation service are available.
JournalTOCs is an initiative of the ICBL at Heriot-Watt University. It was created in 2009 with funding from the JISC Rapid Innovation Grants, and is now an independent service.
