Tips on Digging into Scholarly Research Journals: JournalTOCs Current Awareness Service

Note from Gary Price, infoDOCKET Founder/Editor

In addition to compiling/editing infoDOCKET each day I also do consulting/writing for the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN).

Yesterday, GIJN published an overview article I wrote about JournalTOCs, a free current awareness service for scholarly literature published in more than 25,000 journals (about 8,000 of them open access) from close to 2500 publishers.

I hope you find the article and the service itself useful.

Another article I wrote for GIJN in discussed using The Wayback Machine as a personal web archiving tool and at the same time helping make the Wayback archive more complete.
