The ZETOC service
provides access to the British Library's Electronic Table of Contents (ETOC)
database. The database contains details of approximately 20,000 current journals
and 16,000 conference proceedings published per year and is fully searchable.
The subject journal coverage includes science, technology, medicine, engineering,
business, law, finance and the humanities. The database covers the years from
1993 to date and is updated daily.
There is a list of all the available
journals on the database.
ZETOC Alert is a
current awareness service which, will email you the table of contents from particular
journals or receive details of articles which, match some pre-defined search
criteria such as an author's name or keywords from the title. The email alerts
will be sent on the day the new data is loaded into the database.
