JournalTOCs is a "real-time awareness service" and has been created to solve these difficulties by ensuring subscribers are immediately notified of new research published in all current journal articles in areas of specific interest to them. JournalTOCs aggregates, normalizes, indexes, classifies and personalises news about the latest articles published in scholarly journals sourced directly from the RSS and OPML encoded files creating a rapid, economic, convenient and above all, personalised current awareness service. JournalTOCs has amassed the largest searchable collection of scholarly journal Tables of Contents (TOCs) with more than 23,000 journals (including 6,704 selected Open Access journals)from over 2,000 global publishing houses.
