Emerald RSS feeds

Emerald provides RSS feeds listing the new Table of Contents for their journals. The feeds are updated every seven days. Remember that the journals are updated at different frequencies and it is quite normal for no content to be added to a particular journal for some weeks. However, by subscribing to the feed you will be notified immediately once the content has been made available by Emerald.

Browse to a journal of interest from the Search and Browse menu in the left navigation bar. You can browse by journal title or subject. You can also limit to content that is part of the Virginia Tech Libraries' subscription, though if you include content outside of the subscription, you may have access to the journal through another subscription or you could request an article through interlibrary loan.

To subscribe to a feed, look for the Table of Contents feed link on the right of the journal's homepage. Depending on what feed reader software you use, you can either click the link to automatically subscribe to the feed, or copy the link address and paste or import the URL into your feed reader manually.

Emerald feeds will not work through Off Campus Sign In. It would be easiest to access the linked articles if you have installed the LibX browser extension in your browser. Then you could access the link from the feed, land at the Emerald page, right-click on that page, and choose Reload via Off Campus Sign In to gain access to the full text. The links from the RSS feeds use Digital Object Identifiers (DOI) that can be entered into the Citation Linker to find whether full text access exists elsewhere when the article is not part of the Virginia Tech Libraries' subscription.

Accessing content from RSS feeds

Most RSS feeds will not work through Off Campus Sign In; the links to articles and other content they provide will likely not work from off campus. The easiest way to resolve this is to install the LibX browser plugin.Once installed, you can right-click on an article page and choose to reload that page through Off Campus Sign In so you'll be recognized as a Virginia Tech user.

Any alerting service could include a citation to an article that is accessible from a different source than the feed provides or is not part of any Virginia Tech Libraries subscription. Use the Citation Linker to lookup if the article is available elsewhere (enter just the DOI digital object identifier if the feed lists it) or to get a link to request the article through interlibrary loan.
