I had a casual chat with a friend during dinner, one conversation topic was how to follow the latest issue of those favorite journals? as he wants to read all those interesting articles in his research area once a new volume is issued but often forgets to do so, and it becomes more and more difficult for him to manage with the increasing number of journals.

Well, it is indeed quite easy if you hear of RSS, RSS is a family of web feed formats used to publish frequently updated works—such as blog entries, news headlines, audio, and video—in a standardized format, it benefits readers who want to subscribe to timely updates from favored websites or to aggregate feeds from many sites into one place. Therefore what we need to do is to subscribe the RSS of the latest issue of those journals we are interested with RSS reader, for instance, Google reader,  whenever there is any update (new volume issued in our case) we will be informed.

Most journals have their own websites and provide RSS links for subscription, and one good site i personal use is ingentaconnect, it lists many popular journals and feeds. Taking finance field as an example:
step 1, go to http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/subcat?j_subject=183&j_availability=;
step 2, choose those interesting journals, for instance, the one I read often, Journal of Financial Economics;
step 3, at the tool section of the right sidebar copy the link of either RSS for latest issue or RSS for recent issues depending on your need, and subscribe with RSS reader;
step 4, done! You don't have to worry about missing the recent articles any more.

Below are the RSS links of latest issue for those top finance journals:
Journal of Finance: http://api.ingentaconnect.com/content/bpl/jofi/latest?format=rss;
Journal of Financial Economics: http://api.ingentaconnect.com/content/els/0304405x/latest?format=rss;
Review of Financial Studies: http://api.ingentaconnect.com/content/oup/revfin/latest?format=rss
Journal of Banking and Finance: http://api.ingentaconnect.com/content/els/03784266/latest?format=rss
