Weekly resource round-up: Tuesday 4th May

This week’s items of interest:

  1. Creating a research blog: This can be a useful way of publicising your research and can be handy for conferences – you can allow interested parties to download your poster, for instance. It’s quite fun too, but remember to be careful what you post. Here’s an example of a good blog.
  2. Journal RSS feeds: These are another way to stay up to date with journals. Most journals have feeds that are updated each time a new article is published – some also have separate feeds for advance online publication. The easiest way to subscribe to a feed is to use an online reader, such as Google Reader, or to use an extension for your web browser such as Sage for Firefox. Microsoft Outlook does it too. In either case, a good first step is to click the on a web page and see what happens.
