Sign up via email to receive the latest table of contents from your favourite professional journals. Update emails will usually be free, though you may not get access to articles’ full text unless we have a subscription to the title.
Sign up to JournalTOCs, a free searchable collection of scholarly journal tables of contents (TOCs).
Sign up to the British Library’s Zetoc, a database service. This allows you to request alerts for specific journal titles or specific search criteria. This is a subscription service and is only available to St George’s users via their network login.
Using NICE Healthcare Databases Advanced Search (HDAS) to find articles is a useful service. Did you know that you can also save the search you have done and set up to receive an alert when new articles are added which match the search? To find out how to carry out a search and set up the alert, please see the HDAS help
pages or ask the library to set you up with an alert on your behalf via CARES
. You can also view videos on the HDAS YouTube
channel. Please contact the library if you need any help with this.
A range of free social and professional networking tools, including ResearchGate, Academia.edu, Mendeley and The Conversation are available to help researchers keep up-to-date.
Citation sharing tools such as Zotero(add-on for the Firefox browser) and Mendeley can help you find, manage and share references with other researchers in your field.
If you are new to using social media, this guide from Newcastle University is a helpful introduction to a variety of tools that can be used at all stages in the research process.
Library staff also run training sessions on using Twitter.
