What types of E-Alerts are available?


  • We offer table of contents alerts for all RSC journals. By subscribing to this service, you will receive table of contents by email when a new journal issue is published online.  
  • We also offer an E-Alert for the RSC eBook Collection. Sent monthly, this alert lists all of the books currently included in the collection.  
  • Alerts are available for select RSC current awareness titles, which notify subscribers when a new collection of records is available online.        

How do I receive E-Alerts?


Enter your email address, complete a few personal details on the simple sign-up form and select which alert(s) you wish to receive - this should only take a couple of minutes. You will immediately receive a confirmation email. 

Tables of contents for your chosen journal(s) will be sent to you by email when a new issue appears online, starting with the next available issue. If you have signed up for the eBook Collection alert or for a current awareness product alert, you will receive a monthly email notification indicating that new records have been added.

Why do I need to complete personal data to change my alerting preferences?

Why do I get an error message when trying to submit changes to my profile?


If, when submitting changes to your profile, you receive the following message, "The security code you entered cannot be verified" and you are confident that you entered the code correctly, please try clicking again on the link to your personalised subscription page in the original email we sent. Make your required changes and submit the form again. Often the problem will not occur the second time. If you continue to have problems submitting your changes, please contact us.

Can I select the format of my alerts?


Alerts are sent in a format that is compatible for readers who prefer plain text (ASCII) or html. The html format E-Alerts for journal table of contents is fully linked to abstracts. Journal subscribers can access full text from the abstract page. If you don't have access to our journals via a subscription (you can check your subscriptions here) you can purchase individual papers using our pay-per-view service.
