TechJournalContents


TechJournalContents [http://www.techxtra.ac.uk/techtocs/] is a new free service that enables a user to “search across the current issues of more than 4,500 scholarly technology journals from multiple publishers” … to find the most research articles in a wide range of scientific, technical, and social science disciplines.

Approximately 400 of the journals searched by TechJournalContents are freely available on Open Access ; access to the full text of search results from other journals will depend on the status of a current institutional or personal subscription. Users can save TechJournalContents searches as an RSS feed that provides notifications of matching results using a feedreader (e.g., Google Reader or Bloglines).

Springer, Emerald, Inderscience, Wiley Interscience, Elsevier, Taylor & Francis, IEEE, Sage, AIP, and IMechE, are among the publishers whose technology-related journals are indexed by TechJournalContents
