Christina's LIS Rant

  Responses from the various vendor reps on RSS
While at SLA last week, I asked several of the vendor reps when they were going to start doing RSS feeds. IOP, of course, already has a lot of great ones. So does Nature (scroll all the way down and look for the little font). Here are my limited and unscientific findings. The British resources are much more likely to have feeds.


PublisherTesting/PlanningRSS What?
AIPX
APSX
Jane'sX
SPIEX
ScienceX

Update: AIP does have an RSS feed for Physics Today (thanks Garrett). I wonder why the people at the booth didn't know about it? Science has one for careers, too.
Update (2): This might have been a bit harsh. There are, no doubt, people in each organization who are well aware of the benefits of feeds and are working on them. I just find it annoying that the people who come to the booth aren't able to talk to me about them and for Nature, that they're hidden down on the page.

Hi Christina. Good seeing you at SLA. Thanks for posting on RSS and vendors. AIP does have a feed for Physics today (although I never seem to get it to work in my reader) and AAAS has the NextWave and Careers in Science feeds. But you're right - publishers have been tentative at best. Garrett
 
Christina,

(It was great talking with you Wednesday afternoon, and yes, we should try to arrange something in Toronto.)

I also talked to a few vendor reps about RSS feeds.
The ACS rep wasn't sure if they would be adding feeds, but someone else from ACS has e-mailed me for a follow-up about how I'm using RSS. The RSC rep had no idea what I was talking about. I also had a good talk with the IOP people and the Nature reps, though I did tell the people at Nature they would serve their users better if they didn't have the feeds buried in the NPG site.
 
Maybe take a look at BioMed Central RSS Feeds
