RSS Feeds

For interested users, we offer a large and growing collection of RSS feeds. (To learn more about this form of content delivery, see Using RSS Feeds, below.)


The best in science news, commentary, and research


Daily headlines, from Science Magazine's News Department


Science Signaling: The Premier Journal of Cell Signaling in Physiology and Disease


From Science Translational Medicine, the new journal integrating the worlds of science and medicine


A sizable suite of regular RSS content updates are available from -- the career development resource for scientists. You can find a complete list here.


"RSS" stands (depending on whom you ask) for "Rich Site Summary," "RDF Site Summary," or "Really Simple Syndication." Whatever the meaning of the abbreviation, RSS is an increasingly popular way for many users to keep track of updates to their favorite Web sites.

Using newsreader software that can be downloaded and installed on their personal computers, users can receive regular updates detailing what's new on specific sites by pointing their newsreader to the appropriate feed address. (A list of RSS feed readers available for download can be found here; please note that this link is provided for information only and that neither Science nor AAAS specifically endorses any individual RSS reader software.)

You can also set up your Web page or site to grab one of our RSS feeds as the Web page loads and plunk headlines and links from the feed directly into your page -- with the text and links on your Web page automatically updating as our feeds are updated. This is a great way to keep users of your Web site informed about what's new on your favorite sites (including, we hope, ours). The easiest way to do it (if you don't feel like writing your own code) is to use one of a number of Web-based services that will generate JavaScript code you can paste into your Web page to grab the feed automatically. For more details, check out FeedRoll, Feed2JS, RSS-To-Javascript, and MobileRSS. (Again, no endorsement is implied; these links are for information only.)

To get started with Science Online's RSS feeds, point your newsreader to the addresses linked to the "XML" labels to the left of the feeds you're interested in. In coming months, we'll be adding additional features and content to these feeds, as well as expanding the feeds available for selected products. Stay tuned.
