A User’s Guide to Twittering – WSJ.com

A User’s Guide to Twittering – WSJ.com, or “Birds of a Feather Twitter Together”, from the Wall Street Journal is an excellent summary of what Twitter is. It also explains the jargon, features and some of what I call Twitterquette.

If the Wall Street Journal is looking at Twitter, we twitterers/tweeters are in danger of becoming establishment. Time to move on?

ticTOCs Journal Tables of Contents Service

ticTOCs is a new scholarly journal tables of contents (TOCs) service and Heriot-Watt is one of the fourteen partners who have developed it. You can use ticTOCs to search for the most recent table of contents of over 11,000 scholarly journals, from over 400 publishers and also view them on the ticTOCs site.

You can view the latest TOC (table of contents) of the journal, link through to the full text (where subscriptions allow), and save selected journals to MyTOCs so that you can return to the site and view future TOCs. Alternatively, you can save your selection as an OPML file and import the list into your favourite RSS reader. Highly recommended.
