Pros: You have access to many full text journals and magazines in the EBSCO databases, and EBSCO TOCs are the only TOCs that will take you to that content. Plus, you can set up TOC alerts for a lot of different journals and magazines using one EBSCO account.
Cons: It is harder to set up TOC alerts in EBSCO than in JournalTOCs. Also, EBSCO TOC alerts occasionally stop working properly, requiring you to set them up again.
