Bibliogo Now Accepts Imports of RSS Feeds From Google Reader

Reprints Desk, Inc. announced the launch of new really simple syndication (RSS) feed import functionality inside Bibliogo, the free RSS feed reader and reference management system. The new functionality was created specifically to accommodate the needs of professionals that monitor peer-reviewed journal content who are seeking an alternative to Google Reader feed reader amid the March 13 announcement from Google Inc. that it will be powering down the service in July 2013.

Scholarly publishers, media, and individual content creators use RSS feeds to syndicate content via a standardized XML file format. Scientists, engineers, clinicians and other professionals subscribe to RSS feeds using an RSS reader that enables them to track and view updated information—saved search alerts from search tools like PubMed, journal table of contents, blog posts, news headlines, competitive intelligence, and more—in a single location on the web or on their desktop. They often include full text, summary information or abstracts as well as metadata pertaining to authors, publishers, and publications. While most RSS aggregation software extracts basic information like titles and descriptions, Bibliogo is purpose-built for scholarly research and extracts as much bibliographic metadata as possible from RSS feeds.

“We realized that there are many professionals scrambling for a new RSS application in light of this sudden and unexpected industry development, so we quickly built an RSS feed import function to ease the transition for the new users that are adopting Bibliogo,” said Ian Palmer, head of sales & marketing at Reprints Desk. “While some generic RSS readers may be okay for the average consumer, we know that scientists, engineers, and others need an RSS reader like Bibliogo that accommodates their specific needs for tracking scholarly information, while simplifying the way in which they interact with this information.”

Bibliogo is the all-in-one literature management solution from Reprints Desk that optimizes literature workflows and reduces the number of systems that individuals and corporations need. Bibliogo features include RSS feed aggregation, remixing and publishing; literature monitoring and alerting; collaborative writing and document/reference management for submissions to publications and regulatory authorities, full-text document delivery acquisition of scientific and technical papers; copyright-compliant personal and workgroup repositories for collaboration; controlled distribution; and content curation for sharing in newsletters, intranets, and portals.
