A whole bunch of leaflets arrived in the Library this morning about a new service – ticTOCs – which has been receiving much praise since its official launch in December last year. ticTOCs is a convenient way to keep up with newly published papers in over 12,000 academic journals from over 400 publishers.
You can monitor a whole list of journal Table of Contents (TOCs), export them as an RSS feed to your favourite feed reader, have them emailed to you, or download them as text files. You can import article citations into RefWorks (where institutional or personal subscriptions allow) but, as yet, ticTOCs does not work with any other bib-management software. They are hoping to add EndNote (another subscription only service) and a freely available one (may I suggest Zotero? and/or Mendeley?).
There is a useful post in News from ticTOCs (their weblog): Six ways to use ticTOCs, the free journal tables of contents service.
