News from ticTOCs

Where academics and researchers keep up-to-date

It’s RSS, Jim, but not as we know it

Posted by Roddy MacLeod on July 25, 2007

The intention of ticTOCs is to make journal Tables of Contents (TOCs) available in a user-friendly environment. In order to do so, it will aggregate RSS feeds for TOCs from various journal publishers.

If you want to know more about RSS, there are various sources, including the RSS Compendium. In addition, for a discussion about the maturing of RSS, some new ways in which it is being used, and some more information about the ticTOCs project, Free Pint have just published a ‘Tips article’ I wrote entitled RSS Update: It’s RSS, Jim, but Not as We Know It.
