For clinicians, researchers and policy makers in healthcare, it is important to keep up to date with the newesr medical-scientific information. The large amount of new information makes this a difficult task. There are various techniques for keeping up to date, for instance reading systematic reviews, searching the literature at regular intervals oneself, and using the e-mail alerting services of, for example, PubMed. A new possibility is to be alerted to new scientific publications, for example, via a 'really simple syndication'(RSS)-feed. This option is now also made available by PubMed. In addition to PubMed, many other websites can now be searched systematically for new information by a RSS reader. With RSS feeds the user can be alerted to new information much faster than by an e-mail alerting service, so that one can anticipate new developments more rapidly.
