  • Some examples: http://www.netvibes.com/whittybus#Demo_Feeds http://www.pageflakes.com/gsmzReaders:Fast Ladder at http://fastladder.com/ is very similar in look and feelto Bloglines. Feedshow at http://reader.feedshow.com/ is relatively new and may be worth trying out.feedreader, newzcrawler. feedDemonPageflakes, iGooglehttp://www.netvibes.com/whittybus#Demo_Feeds Have to be logged in.
  • Demo – Google reader and Netvibes. Google alert. Pubmed – database – ebsco? - you may have to create an ‘account’ on some databases – this is free and quick so worth it. Neural mechanisms and perception? Potassium Channels. http://feedity.com/ - creates them from a static webpage.
  • FeedBlendr
  • If you are stuck:- journal DatabaseGoogle alertWebsite – news one if stuck.  PubMed or find another one?? Scopus or WOK?Science Direct, Ebsco, Sage journals, Law databases / history databases / Arts/hum databases…   Some don’t have them. Most of the ‘big’ ones should do. ….go directly to a journals page or try another route. TRY searching in the ‘help’ part of the database if in doubt. Or try tictocs / ZETOC   PubMed: Run search, click on RSS icon above search bar, settings, right click and click on XML button. Copy into your reader. Scopus: Run search, click on ‘set feed’ icon, edit name if you wish, continue, copy and paste. WOS (alerting not available for WOK) you need to register for an account. Citation alert: find your article, click on create citation alert, there is an xml icon. Run Search – then save your search. Go to search history, Save history / create alerts, save, you get the xml icon. EBSCO: Run your search, go to search history, click on the RSS icon. This appears to work but may be more reliable to create and account:Run search, search history, save searches / alerts, fill in settings, you will get RSS link. CSA Illumina: Run search, alert me, create account, save your search alerts gives you the option to save as RSS. Dialog: Run search, create alert button top right, follow instructions. Lawtel has them, not other law databases.
