Here is a low cost option.  For $25 per year (or for free if your library
subscribes) Uncover Reveal will e-mail Journal Table of Content pages and
weekly searches of newly released titles using your personal search
strategy. 

Check out the following Web page:  http://www.carl.org/reveal/index.html  

Here is a short description from their Web Page:

"UnCover Reveal is an automated alerting service that delivers the table
of contents of your favorite periodicals
directly to your e-mail box. The Reveal service also allows users to
create search strategies for their favorite topics.
These search strategies are then run against the entire UnCover database
and weekly alerts on the latest articles
published on the specified topics are also delivered to the user's e-mail
address. In both cases, after viewing the
e-mailed alerts, the user can selectively order and pay for individual
articles from UnCover by sending reply e-mail
or printing the page and faxing the order to UnCover".
