RSS News Feeds

What are RSS News Feeds?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a simple way to get news from your favorite sources.  Rather than visiting all your favorite websites to check for new information, you "subscribe" so that news is delivered to you as it is published. 

The method for subscribing to a feed can vary somewhat depending on the particular reader you use. Usually you simply click on the orange RSS or XML button, copy the feed's URL from the displayed page, and then paste it into the reader.

Individual Journals
No one method is perfect for finding RSS feeds for individual journals:

  • Look on individual publisher websites for RSS icons or information.

  • Search, a directory of periodicals for titles or subjects. After selecting a title, select the "Abstracting/Indexing & Article Access" tab for any available RSS information.
