Keeping Current: Subscribing to Emerging Research & Evidence

Keeping Current: Subscribing to Emerging Research & Evidence Online

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 tables 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 tables of contents
  • Set up an RSS feed in Feedly
  • Create a search alert in a database
  • Subscribe to journals in JournalTOCs
