Is there something like Google Alerts specifically for scientific journals ?

I find myself routinely searching the same set of scientific journals with a specific set of keywords to see if there has been any recent new publications on the topics I am interested in.
Is there a tool/system that will do this automatically?
I know certain sets of publications, ones that belong to the same publisher, allow you to do this. However I'd be interested in something that can span multiple journals from different publishers and also allows you to tailor the keywords for each journal separately.
Being able to search for specific authors would also be a great feature.
Oh, and I'd like it to be web based to avoid a deluge of e-mails.
Does such a beast exist?
