JournalTOCsRead by QxMD and Docphin all work with NYU Health Sciences library's authentication, which allows you access to NYU's subscriptions.

Unlike the TOC emails you get from individual journals, these resources allow you to view the full-text of articles instantly.

Note: These applications do not offer all of NYU's ~11,000 journals.  



The library provides JournalTOCs, a website for quickly and easily signing up to receive table of contents notices by email from your favorite journals. 

To learn how to use JournalTOCs either watch this short video, or follow the step-by-step directions below:

5. Make sure to select the check box for “Email Alerts is On.”

6. Go to “Account Settings” to set the frequency to receive alerts – from once a day to once a month. You can also deactivate alerts in case you plan to be out of the office for an extended period.
