Send to RSS
The RSS (Really Simple Syndication) function in PubMed allows you to generate an RSS feed of a PubMed search to display new results, with links back to the citations in PubMed.
To create an RSS feed and enter it into a feed reader:
- Run your search.
- Click Create RSS, below the search box.
- Select the number of items to be sent daily to the feed reader, and rename the feed, if desired.
- Click Create RSS.
- Drag and drop the XML icon onto the feed reader interface.
- Click on the orange XML icon, and copy the URL in the address box of the resulting browser window. Follow the instructions of your feed reader software .
Note that your RSS feed will only display new items. Also, if your results exceed the maximum number of items you selected, the feed will only display a link back to your results in PubMed.
If you would like to display more complete search results, consider using e-Utilities to create a script. If you prefer to receive new results from your PubMed search in your e-mail, use the Save Search feature of My NCBI.
