Keeping up-to-date and current with research in your field can be very challenging. It is useful to set up accounts for any databases you use regularly such as Web of Science and Scopus. This allows you to save searches and articles and keep track of your literature searching. You can also set up email alerts or RSS feeds for searches to keep you up-to-date with any new articles that match your search criteria.
Table of content (TOC) alerts for journals can also be set up in email and RSS formats (see Journal TOCs for more information).
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary. An RSS “feed” contains a summary of content or headlines from a website
To use an RSS feed you must have an RSS reader. Most readers are available to download for free and can be desktop readers or online. Examples include:
Preprint Servers – A preprint is a complete scientific manuscript that is uploaded by the authors to a public server. The preprint contains complete data and methodologies and is often the same manuscript being submitted to a journal. Examples include Preprints.org, PrePubMed, PeerJ, and ASAPbio.
