Shortly after I bemoaned the lack of subdiscipline feeds at Sciencedirect, someone from Sciencedirect e-mailed me to let me know that they do exist, they’re just a little hidden away. If you log in with a personal Sciendirect registration, then click on ‘Alerts’ in the main navigation bar, there is a ‘topic alerts’ option. However, you don’t have to do any of that, because I’ve been given permission to share them here:
- Atmospheric Sciences
- Computers in Earth Sciences
- Earth Sciences
- Earth Surface Processes
- Economic Geology
- Engineering Geology
- Planetary Science
- Space Science
Sciencedirect also offers RSS feeds for individual journals, and for user-defined searches and citation alerts. I never got any of it to work when I was in Johannesburg (both Google Reader and Bloglines refused to subscribe to the feeds) but it seems to be working now. I’m currently making an effort to make browsing relevant paper abstracts as easy as browsing blog posts by directing stuff into my feed readers. And of course, then you have the option of sharing ones that you find interesting…
The Geological Society of America also offer RSS feeds for their journals:
If there are any other useful feeds that people have come across in their internet travels, let me know in the comments.
Update: Mel has posted a list of feeds that she subscribes to.
