BioMed Central RSS feeds

What is RSS?

RSS is a format for delivering regularly updated web content automatically without you having to visit website individually. BioMed Central syndicates content as RSS Feeds, making it available to anyone that wants it.

How can I read an RSS Feed?

Feed Reader or News Aggregator software allow you to capture RSS feeds from the websites you use and display them for you in one place. Some examples of reader software are...

Mobile readers

  • Feedler (iPhone, iPad)
  • FeedR (Android)
  • BlackBerry’s have a inbuilt RSS reader


  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Internet Explorer (v7 and above)
  • Opera

Desktop Software

  • Microsoft Outlook (Windows)
  • Newz Crawler (Windows)
  • Apple Mail (Mac)
  • Net News Wire (Mac)

The next step is to go and set-up the feeds you are interested in. You can do this by looking for the RSS Logo symbol. For example, go to and look for the subheading "Latest articles".

Next to it, you will see the RSS symbol. Click on this and it will take you to the latest articles published in any BioMed Central journal.

If you want to subscribe to this RSS feed, using Google Reader for example, click on the orange RSS symbol. You will then be taken to a page listing the articles in this feed. Click on the link at the top of the page "Subscribe to this feed in Google Reader", and the feed will be added to your list of subscribed feeds.
