RSS Feeds for Veterinary Journals

Last year, during the food recall, it seemed like new foods were being added to the recall list on a daily basis and I had great difficulty keeping up. In fact, when my own cat had eaten recalled food, I did not find out until VetCentric called me at home and at the office to alert me. It was then that I discovered the FDA‘s RSS feed on recalls. Every day, I would check my RSS reader for the latest on recall alerts and I was no longer in the dark when new recalls were announced.

Since then, I have found RSS feeds to be a helpful way of keeping up with the latest veterinary literature. I read through the abstracts as soon as they are published online & then determine if I want to read the entire article. Many US veterinary college libraries allow veterinarians in their state to request individual articles for free or a reduced fee. You can also order individual articles through the Veterinary Information Network (VIN). The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons subscribes to many veterinary journals and any veterinarian (whether in the UK or abroad) can become a member for a very reasonable price. This keeps printed journal subscriptions to a minimum and means less paper waste. And you can keep a pdf of each article on file in your computer, rather than paper files which take up so much space and time to maintain. You can also have a separate drive or an online service like Carbonite to back up your files, so that all your journal articles are still accessible if your computer is lost, stolen, destroyed, or self-destructs.

There are numerous RSS readers out there. I like Google Reader, as it is easy to read and is incorporated in to my Google account. Yahoo has a nice reader as well.

There are also services which will search newly released articles for parameters you set and either send you an email, or place it in a mailbox for you to check when you next login. PubMed’s MyNCBI and Highwire both offer these services. On the human side, Amedeo will send you a weekly list of abstracts on the subject of your choice (from a menu) and journal of your choice (from a menu). I am trying to convince Amedeo to start a veterinary journal alert service. I will let you know if I am successful.

I have found lists of human medical journal RSS feeds, but have yet to find something similar in Veterinary Medicine. So here are the ones I have found so far. Please feel free to comment if you find additional links or have a problem with a link.
