Milestones: JournalTOCs Now Provides Free Access to Tables of Contents for More than 20,000 Scholarly Journals

Congrats and kudos to Roddy MacLeod and the rest of the JournalTOCS team at the Heriot-Watt Universtiy in Scotland for reaching this impressive milestone.

JournalTOCs has been online since 2009.

If you’re unaware of this FREE service,  I wrote an overview post about it late last year for Search Engine Land.

Here are a few highlights:

  1. TOCs for more than 20,000 journals from more than 1200 publishers
  2. More than 4,400 of the journals are open access
  3. Search for titles by name or ISSN
  4. Browse for titles by publisher or subject
  5. Alerts delivered on site, by RSS, via email
  6. A Free API is available
  7. Library subscriptions are available and include customization options

JournalTOCS continues to be one most useful freebies out there. It’s also a great service to share with others who have an interest in knowing about what’s being published in just about any area of knowledge.
