Keeping Current: Journal Alerts / BrowZine

Journal Alerts

Want to keep up with updates from particular journals? Getting tables of contents emailed directly to you as new issues are published is a good way.

Table of Contents (TOC) Alerts

Subscribing to a journal's TOC alert means that it's sent to you as and when a new issue is published. Most publishers provide this service for free (often requiring registration to the publisher's site and may charge a fee). Staff and students are encouraged to access journals via our library proxy for full coverage to subscribed journals.

Alternatively, you might want to check out JournalTOCs. JournalTOCs is the largest, free collection of scholarly journal TOCs of more than 30,000 journals, including over 15,000 open access journals and 12,000 hybrid journals from over 3000 publishers. JournalTOCs alerts you when new issues of your followed journals are published.


BrowZine  delivers thousands of academic journals to your Web Browser, iPad, iPhone or Android tablet.
