Keeping Current: Subscribing to Emerging Research & Evidence

Keeping Current: Subscribing to Emerging Research & Evidence

Do you find it challenging to keep up to date with the latest info in your field? Reduce information overload and automate the task of keeping current with tools such as RSS feeds, search alerts and journal table of contents. These tools can bring newly released or published info together in one place, making it easier to stay current.

Learning outcomes:

  • Differentiate between RSS feeds, search alerts and journal table of contents

  • Set up an RSS feed

  • Create a search alert in a database

  • Set up an account with JournalTOCs and subscribe to journals

Recommended for: Staff, physicians and/or researchers who are looking to simplify the task of keeping current with their research areas of interest.
