You can subscribe to RSS feeds for the Table of Contents of Sage Publications, Sage Science Press, and Corwin Press journals that are updated whenever new issues are added to the database.
You can browse journals by title. You can limit to journals in the Virginia Tech Libraries' subscription, but if you include journalsd outside the subscription, the articles listed in your feeds may be available fom another subscription source or you could request the article through interlibrary loan.
When you have located a journal of interest, look for the RSS Feed icon and link on the journal's homepage. Click this link to see several options for feeds: table of contents for the current issue only, table of contents for recent issues, a list of the most frequently read articles, or a list of the most frequently cited articles (those cited in other Sage journals only). Copy the address for the feed you wish to subscribe to and paste or import it into your feed software.
Most RSS feeds will not work through Off Campus Sign In; the links to articles and other content they provide will likely not work from off campus. The easiest way to resolve this is to install the LibX browser plugin.Once installed, you can right-click on an article page and choose to reload that page through Off Campus Sign In so you'll be recognized as a Virginia Tech user.
Any alerting service could include a citation to an article that is accessible from a different source than the feed provides or is not part of any Virginia Tech Libraries subscription. Use the Citation Linker to lookup if the article is available elsewhere (enter just the DOI digital object identifier if the feed lists it) or to get a link to request the article through interlibrary loan.
