Another publishing first from the RSC

05 June 2007

The RSC Publishing has become the first ever publisher to enhance RSS feeds with structured subject and compound information.

This latest innovation means that RSS feeds from RSC journals will also display ontology terms and compound details, including the 2D image. 

Journal RSS feeds from RSC Publishing were the first from a scientific publisher to include the graphical abstract.

But now users will be able to see at a glance whether the paper is relevant to their research. 

In addition, hidden coding within the RSS feed allows the metadata to be read by machine - another step towards the "semantic web".

"This is another example of a learned society publisher bringing unique benefits to the subject community" explained Richard Kidd, Manager of Editorial Production Systems in RSC Publishing. "We are proud to be at the forefront of publishing innovation once again."
