All EBSCOhost databases and interfaces support RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") Feeds for search alerts and journal alerts. An RSS feed will allow a user to see the latest in results for any search. The RSS feed is in XML format, and can be displayed using various methods, such as in an RSS reader, or using an XSL stylesheet in a browser.
An RSS feed can be setup using any database interface you prefer. RSS feeds can be setup for basic searches, advanced searches, and publications.
