Services to keep you up to date with journal content

There is a growing number of services available to keep up to date with scholarly and healthcare  journals.  Below some of the main ones are described. All are free to use although Zetoc is a subscription service and off-site requires a login using NHS Athens username & password.

Some of these services use RSS feeds. What is RSS?

Zetoc RSS / Alerts
The Zetoc database contains details of approximately 20,000 current journals and 16,000 conference proceedings published per year. It covers all subject areas for publications from 1993 to date, and is updated daily. A list of journals included can be found here Three features are provided:

Zetoc Search: for citations of journal articles and conference proceedings
Zetoc Alert: to set up alerts to receive emails for  journal table of contents (TOCS) or new articles which match your search criteria
Zetoc RSS: to set up RSS feeds for journal TOCs

Zetoc is a joint venture between the British Library and MIMAS at the University of Manchester.

ticTOCs – Tables of Contents Service
ticTOCs is a new scholarly journal tables of contents (TOCs) service.  It’s easy to use, and it provides access to the most recent tables of contents of over 11,000 scholarly journals from more than 400 publishers. Search for Tables of Contents, view the latest TOC for each journal, link to the full text of around 250,000 articles (where subscription allows), export TOC feeds to popular feedreaders, and select and save (by ticking them) journal titles in order to view future TOCs. Register to ensure your MyTOCs are permanently saved.

Heriot-Watt University is one of the partners involved in developing this service, which was funded by JISC.

FeedNavigator – medical sources only
From the University of Helsinki, FeedNavigator downloads medical RSS feeds published by websites and aggregates their content into a single feed, latest news first. This gives access to over 4,000 medical sources, including numerous journal Tables of Contents, which are updated continuously.
