Some technical notes

The data used to power this service come from the RSS feeds provided by each of the journal publishers. Some publishers provide better feeds than others and even within a publisher some journals give more information than others. Although RSS is a widely used standard, each publisher uses it in a slightly different way, so I can only reliably extract the article title and publication date. Not all journals give the authors of papers, but they’re included if possible.

Publication dates are problematic, because some journals add a paper to their RSS feeds when it is first published online, while others only add it when the article is published in the print edition of the journal. This service will let you know about an article as soon as it is added to a journal RSS feed, and make it clear if the article has published previously.
