ticTOCs is a free online Table of Contents alerting service. It has been around for some months now, and is now at the stage of 'critical mass' where it has enough journals to make it a useful service. The latest news release (reproduced in part below) gives more details.
It perhaps oversells its strengths. 11,000 journals is an impressive total, but there are still some important journals not on the list. You might want to look at the Library's databases and e-journals to sign up for TOCs there. The ticTOCs list gives access to TOCs "within a tick or two " but the subject lists are clumsy and poorly organised. For example the Sociology subject currently has 279 titles with no more specific subjects. The History subject list has a few more focussed subjects (History of Africa, History of Asia, etc) but the vast majority of titles are simply listed under the general heading. Be prepared to do a bit of scrolling through the lists.
Those reservations aside, it's a very useful service, and coming from JISC has a good academic focus.
ticTOCs is a new scholarly journal tables of contents (TOCs) service. It’s free, 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. It helps scholars, researchers, academics and anyone else keep up-to-date with what’s being published in the most recent issues of journals on almost any subject.
Using ticTOCs, you can find journals of interest by title, subject or publisher, view the latest TOC, link through to the full text of over 250,000 articles (where institutional or personal subscriptions, or Open Access, allow), and save selected journals to MyTOCs so that you can view future TOCs (free registration is required if you want to permanently save your MyTOCs). ticTOCs also makes it easy to export selected TOC RSS feeds to popular feedreaders such as Google Reader and Bloglines, and in addition you can import article citations into RefWorks (where institutional or personal subscriptions allow).
You select TOCs by ticking those of interest - thousands of TOCs, within a tick or two (hence the name ticTOCs).
ticTOCs has been funded under the JISC Users & Innovations programme, and has been developed by an international consortium consisting of the University of Liverpool Library (lead), Heriot-Watt University, CrossRef, ProQuest, Emerald, RefWorks, MIMAS, Cranfield University, Institute of Physics, SAGE Publishers, Inderscience Publishers, DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals), Open J-Gate, and Intute.
