We are pleased to announce our Table of Contents (TOC) alerts service is now live on Emerald Insight.


By subscribing to TOC alerts for selected book series and journals, users will receive an email alert with the table of contents when a new journal issue or book series issue is published, meaning you can keep up to date with the latest content in your subject area without having to search or browse every time. 


Please note: To view the full-text content highlighted within the TOC alerts email, you will need to ensure that you are authenticated for access. If not, you will see an access restricted message for any content which is not available as Open Access. Click here for further information. 

How do I subscribe?
To subscribe to the TOC alerts service you must have a profile on Emerald Insight. 

  • New users will need to register a profileThis can be done at the point of subscribing to the alerts.
  • If you already have a profile on  Emerald Insight then you do not need to register again. 
  • If you had a profile on the old platform, this was migrated over when we launched the new platform last year. If you have not yet activated your profile on  Emerald Insight please go to emerald.com/login and follow the 'forgot your password’ option to set a new password and re-activate your profile. Please also see the additional note re previous alert subscriptions, below.

To subscribe, simply locate the journal of choice through our Publication Sitemap and click on the 'subscribe link'. If this link is not visible under the title's homepage then the alert service is not available for this title.

If you already have a profile or are not currently signed in, you will be prompted to log in at this point and all your alert subscriptions will be visible in your profile account. You will then be able to manage/unsubscribe from any alerts via your profile area.


I registered for alerts on the previous platform - can i re-subscribe?

All previously registered Table of Contents alert preferences have been reinstated on your profile - there is no need to create new profile where your user email address is the same. Simply follow the instructions above to reactivate these.


Can I create a new profile using a different email?
Yes, to create a new profile under a different email address, please go to emerald.com/register. For guidance on creating a profile, you may refer to our user guides.


I have logged in with my SSO details, why can't I sign up?

We are aware of an issue with Shibboleth and OpenAthens users, whereby the option to log in to a personal profile does not co-exist when users are already signed in via SSO. This is being investigated as a priority and we hope to have this resolved very soon.


If you are having difficulties updating your existing profile or registering a new one, please contact our Customer Support Team at support@emerald.com.
