Journal Table of Contents Service

Friends, you really, really, should sign up for this free service. JournalTOCs allows you to select academic journals to follow, then emails you a table of contents when a new issue comes out. This is something I’ve been wanting for quite awhile! A recent sample of the sort of email I get:

Of course, this is not a journal subscription, just an alert to new issues. So clicking through to the listed articles doesn’t necessarily (or usually) bring you to the full text of the article. The value is that you constantly receive fresh updates as to what is being published, and can note if something new has come up in an area you are researching, upon which you can obtain the article in whatever way is available to you.

To give a small idea of the variety available, here are the journals from which I’ve elected to receive tables of contents:
