What are RSS feeds?

RSS stands for "RDF Site Summary" or "Really Simple Syndication". It provides a mechanism to subscribe to "headlines" from a web site. RSS can be used as an alternative to electronic tables of contents for receipt of up-to-date TOC and Abstract information, or as a way of syndicating information from this website on another site.

What information is available via RSS?

The RSS feeds provide TOC and Abstract information for recent and current issues of each journal. Two feeds are available for this journal:

RSSClinical Infectious Diseases - RSS feed of current issue

RSSClinical Infectious Diseases - RSS feed of recent issues (covers the latest 3 issues, including the current issue)

RSSAdvance Access - RSS feed of articles published online ahead of print

RSSMost Frequently Read Articles

RSSMost Frequently Cited Articles

As with an electronic table of contents, if you wish to view the full text of any article listed in the RSS feed, simply click on the article's link to the online journal site.

How do I use an RSS feed?

To make use of this service, you will need a piece of software known as an RSS Reader or Aggregator. This automatically gathers RSS feeds from all of your selected online publications, and makes them available to you on your desktop.

As new issues of this journal are published, the RSS Reader will automatically download details via RSS and will alert you that a new issue is available online.

Many RSS readers are available - click here for a list. Please note we cannot recommend a specific RSS reader and cannot provide support in the use of RSS readers; you download and install them at your own risk.

Why do I see "code" when I click on the RSS link?

RSS is an established standard which uses XML to mark up the content feed. This is designed to be viewed using a special RSS Reader. Viewing an RSS page in a standard internet browser will therefore show you the tagged data in a "raw" format.

These RSS feeds are in the RSS 1.0 format. See for a detailed specification.
