Springer RSS feeds

You can subscribe to RSS feeds for searches and journal table of contents in SpringerLink.

To subscribe to a search feed, first perform the search from Springer's homepage. At the top of the search results, look for the orange RSS icon. Copy the address of the feed and paste or import that URL into your feed reader. The feed will update whenever new matches to your search criteria are added to the Springer database.

To subscribe to journal table of content feeds, search or browse for journal titles. At the top of the journal of interest's homepage, look for the RSS icon. Copy the address of the feed and paste or import that URL into your feed reader. The feed will update whenever a new issue or volume is added to Springer's database.


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.
