Journal Tools


Users of customized versions of JournalTOCs can choose from the following alert frequencies

  • Once a day
  • Once a week (Weekly Digest)
  • Once a month (Monthly Digest)
  • Filtered & On Demand (Managed by the super-user), or
  • Temporary deactivated (holidays)

I don't see the Journal I want to follow when I look at the list in JTOCS.

  • If there is a title missing from JTOCS that you would like them to include please fill out the form on this site. SUGGEST A TITLE (note: this is the JTOCS website)

When I click on the link to get to the article the site asks me to log in.

  • If Mason subscribes to the journal we may need to update our records. Please notify library staff for assistance.
  • Mason may not subscribe to the journal. If this is the case talk to your research subject librarian. Find them here

Are there limits to the number of journals I can follow?

No. Some people follow 5 journals and others follow 80. You can decide.

Sometimes I get an alert email with only one title. Is this working properly?

Yes, that happens.  There are a fair number of e-journals who roll out articles as they're ready. If the frequency of emails is a problem you can customize your settings.
