What should publishers of scholarly journals know about Table of Contents RSS feeds?

Posted by Roddy MacLeod on November 19, 2008

RSS is an excellent and cost-effective way of driving traffic to, and increasing brand awareness of publishers’ content. So, What should publishers of scholarly journals know about Table of Contents RSS feeds?

Lisa Rogers, who works on the ticTOCs Project at Heriot-Watt University, has written an article entitled:
RSS and Scholarly Journal Tables of Contents: the ticTOCs Project, and Good Practice Guidelines for Publishers. The article was published in FUMSI, October 2008. As well as looking at journal Table of Contents RSS feeds and how ticTOCs is developing its service, the article gives some detailed guidelines for publishers on best practice for TOC RSS feeds. This article should be of great interest to any journal publisher.
