Keeping up-to-date with the scholarly literature just became much easier, thanks to a new service called ticTOCs – Journal Tables of Contents Service.
ticTOCs is a new scholarly journal tables of contents (TOCs) service. It’s free, its easy to use, and it provides access to the most recent tables of contents of over 11,000 scholarly journals from more than 400 publishers. It helps scholars, researchers, academics and anyone else keep up-to-date with what’s being published in the most recent issues of journals on almost any subject.
Using ticTOCs, you can find journals of interest by title, subject or publisher, view the latest TOC, link through to the full text of over 250,000 articles (where institutional or personal subscriptions, or Open Access, allow), and save selected journals to MyTOCs so that you can view future TOCs (free registration is required if you want to permanently save your MyTOCs). ticTOCs also makes it easy to export selected TOC RSS feeds to popular feedreaders such as Google Reader and Bloglines, and in addition you can import article citations into RefWorks (where institutional or personal subscriptions allow).
You select TOCs by ticking those of interest – thousands of TOCs, within a tick or two (hence the name ticTOCs).
For the full press release, please see: http://tictocsnews.wordpress.com/2008/12/11/scholarly-journals-new-free-service-makes-keeping-up-to-date-easy/

If you are interested in tracking a reference (say a seminal work or an article of your own perhaps) you can use the cited references tab in these databases.
Web of Knowledge
You can also use a citation tracker if you want alerts (emails) sent to you everytime a reference you are interested in gets cited. Make sure you sign up for a personal account- and then you can choose the settings you require.
This should help you keep one step ahead!
If you need any more information on how to set these up- let us know.
