Alerts and eTocs

Virtually all databases offer the possibility to set up free alerts, thus you get notified when new content that is of interest for you has been published. In most cases you have to register at the publishers web site, and sometimes you only need to enter your e-mail address. Depending on the database, you can set up alerts to topics, authors, key words, citations etc. Do not hesitate to ask us for support.


Like databases, almost all journals also offer the possibility of subscribing to electronic tables of content, for free and without being a subscriber. You thus receive an e-mail once a new issue is or new articles have been published. Again, in most cases you have to register at the publisher’s web site. Once you are registered, your account works for eTocs of all journals of a publishers, including databases – like with Elsevier. We are happy to help you.

APIs of Database Publishers

Publishers sometimes allow using their database content in internal information systems, with internal information retrieval tools through an API (Application Programming Interface). Thus, licensees are allowed to use data or data sets for their own analyses or processing. If you are interested, please contact Dr. Oliver Renn.

Data Sets

Beside the use of database content through APIs some publishers offer the possibility – depending on the license agreement – of receiving single and highly selected data sets that can be used independently or processed in your own systems. If you are interested please contact Dr. Oliver Renn.
