Zetoc: The monitoring and search service for global research publications

Welcome to Zetoc. We are one of the world’s most comprehensive research databases, giving you access to over 29,000 journals and more than 52 million article citations and conference papers through the British Library’s electronic table of contents.

Keeping pace with your peers, staying up to date with new research, and expanding your field of knowledge has never been so simple. We make it easy for you to set-up personalised email Zetoc Alerts or RSS feeds to track the latest articles or journal titles related to your interests. In most cases, you can access abstracts or the full text of articles, depending on your institution’s subscription arrangements.

Our service is free for members of Jisc-sponsored UK higher and further education institutions, research councils. Among our subscribers are NHS organisations in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and a number of other institutions are also eligible to subscribe.

“Gives me up-to-date articles, particularly relevant to my fields of interest, without me having to find the time or motivation to go looking for them. It reminds me to read. It reminds me that other lecturers are facing the same challenges as I am, when I read their solutions, and that gives me great comfort. It reminds me that there are always new ways to solve problems, and that gives me hope. Would you like more? I could go on ;-)”

“I get the opportunity to see contents of current journals through desktop alerts and to link to items of interest that otherwise I probably wouldn't have seen.”
