Abstract

RSS feeds allow academics and others to keep track of the latest papers to publish in a chosen selection of research journals. They are machine-readable and aggregable, thus presenting a potentially simple solution for promoting content awareness on a large scale. However, Andreas Pacher flags a handful of problems which continue to limit the effectiveness of RSS feeds; namely a lack of metadata, a lack of harmonised metadata, and a more general lack of awareness. If efforts are focused on addressing these problems, RSS potentially speeds up science by aiding research discovery for scholars and other publics, representing a positive contribution to scholarly communications as a whole.
