Although many feel that RSS is dead, I still find it to be a highly useful tool for finding new interesting reading material. As such, we’re happy to announce some new functionality in Cold Spring Harbor Protocols involving our RSS feeds that send out alerts when new articles are published. Previously you could only sign up for RSS feeds for article types–protocols, emerging model organisms, etc. Now you can sign up for notice of new material by subject area. This will let you see when new protocols are available in your specific subject area, whether it’s Genome Analysis, Imaging Development or Plant Cell Culture. For those more reliant on e-mail than RSS feeds, remember you can sign up for a wide variety of alerts by table of contents, subject, citation, keyword or author.
