Ways to Keep Current

Most academic databases allow you to set up RSS feeds or e-mail alerts for individual journals or searches (keywords, etc.). These allow you to keep current of new publications in your field without having to regularly repeat multiple searches.

JournalTOC is a free service that collects feeds from over 19,000 academic journals, and can provide you with new tables of contents whenever a new issue is published.  Browse by subject area, journal title, or combine multiple journal titles into a single feed!

Highly Cited Journals

Here are examples of highly cited journals from the fields of urban studies. Set up personalized feeds to these or other journals using the free JournalTOC service, publishers' websites, or through our subscription databases.

Rankings are in order of impact factor as calculated by Journal Citation Reports for 2014. Ask a librarian for assistance using this tool or for more information on impact factors and other citation measurements.
