We offer a range of web feeds for individuals and websites to keep track of our most recent headlines, giving immediate access to articles as they are published on the SciDev.Net website. All feeds are available in Chinese, English, French and Spanish. They can be universal or tailored to particular region or topic.
SciDev.Net offers two types of feed:
RSS (really simple syndication) is a feed for individuals who wish to view regularly updated news stories directly on their desktop. In order to view these you will need a piece of software called an RSS reader. There are many different types available, and the most suitable for you will depend on your individual system requirements. Once you have selected an RSS reader all you need to do is select which of our feeds you would like to receive.
This is intended for individuals or organisations who wish to show a SciDev.Net feed on their own website. SciDev.Net provides the HTML coding required and allows the design to be adapted to suit your website. These feeds are maintenance free, as they are automatically updated as soon as a new article appears on the SciDev.Net website. To see an example in use you can visit the TWAS website.
Each feed carries the latest articles, including a short headline, introduction and link to the full article.
Our universal feed, available on the website homepage, displays all new articles as they are published, and covers all regions and topics.
There is a feed for each of our six topic gateways, providing the latest articles on developments in the fields of agriculture and environment, climate change and energy, health, science communication, science innovation and policy and new technologies. RSS feeds are available for over 80 sub-topics within these six gateways, for example within the topic 'health' you can subscribe to a 'malaria' RSS feed.
Regionally tailored feeds provide up–to-date articles about developments taking place in SciDev.Net's regions: China, Latin America and Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, South Asia, South-East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
