New Journal Search Feature LaunchedMay 17, 2007
All SIAM journals now have a new online search capability - RSS Saved Search. RSS Saved Search allows users to save their search criteria as an RSS feed. Feeds can currently be established based on any search across our online platform's database (Scitation).
While traditional saved search functions require that users be logged on to the hosting platform in order to run stored searches, the RSS Saved Search service allows them to automatically receive new results at any time in their RSS reader or browser.
All SIAM search results now display a prominent RSS button and a help box that users can click on to explain RSS feeds and to instruct them to add the search results' URLs to their RSS reader. RSS feeds can return a maximum of 20 results and the feeds are updated daily.
Users can create a tremendously broad range of RSS feeds, all with great specificity, as they have access to the bibliographic records and abstracts of the more than one million articles hosted on Scitation. Searching is free and does not require a login. Users may display, refine, or sort search results by criteria including full bibliographic record, author name, publication date range, and publication volume and issue.
We hope that SIAM subscribers take advantage of this new capability, which will allow them to keep abreast of new information that is of particular interest to them.
