    Medworm RSS filter engine


    Looking for an RSS feed for a journal? Can't find it on their website? You could try googling it, or you could look in Medworm. I was looking for an RSS feed for Clinical Radiology and found it through Medworm. They didn't have one for the British Journal of Radiology, though, and I couldn't find it on the BIR site either, but located it via Google.

    As an aside, I used to use iGoogle as a means of getting RSS feeds, but have since switched to Google reader. On iGoogle, a maximum of 9 items are displayed, which is not sufficient for all the articles in one issue of a journal. I also find Google reader easier to organise. I'm sure there are lots of other feed readers out there, but I seem to do most things through Google, and the reader works fine for me, so I haven't bothered to try any of the others.

    Glad to see you using MedWorm.
    Here's the link to all the radiology feeds.
    They are ordered by the last published date.
    Here's the same list ordered alphabetically.
    There's also an OPML file on that page for all the radiology feeds.
    And here's River of News with RSS feed
    for all of the radiology feeds.
    You may also be interested in the radiology blogs section (where you’ll find that your blog is indexed).
    Do let me know if you have any feedback/requests after using MedWorm. Many thanks!
