Tables of contents: our top 4 tools

How to stay up-do-date with the scientific literature in your field? Here are the top 4 tools recommended by the Central Medical Library:

No. 1 choice: BrowZine

BrowZine is most used within the UMCG
Easy and intuitive tool for e-journals

Use BrowZine to browse the most recent tables of content for your preferred journals. It works on your computer, laptop or mobile device.
Almost all e-journals that we subscribe to are included in BrowZine, so every article is full-text available.

No. 2 choice: Read

Read contains basically all articles in PubMed.
Read provides a single place to discover new research, read topic reviews and search PubMed.

Note: you have access to the fulltext of most - but not all - articles in Read. Of course you can always request an article from another library, free of charge.

No. 3 choice PubMed Alert

PubMed lets you set up email alerts when articles matching your search criteria are published.

Requires free registration.

No. 4 choice: Journal TOCs

The JournalTOCs Tables of Contents is a free service that provides access in one place to the most recent tables of contents for scholarly journals. Alerts can be emailed or sent to an RSS feed.

Free registration allows you to create a customized list of your favorite journals.
