Breaking Health News

Catching Up with Science

The pace of discovery and development in science, medicine and technology has never been faster. Thousands of research papers, reports, articles and press releases reporting breaking news are launched in print and on science news websites every hour of the day.  

Keeping up with science news is time consuming and can involved looking through many science websites. Even just staying in touch with major developments and being able to track news headlines in your special interest areas can take a large chunk of time.

Take biology news, for example - you could look at a dozen biology news websites before you found one that carried interesting news for you.

What is good science news?

Science news on the web is useful to different audiences in a variety of ways. Academic medical research scientists use online medical journals such as The Lancet when they want to know the details of new publications in their field of expertise. Science teachers need to find new examples for course material. Students of all ages need to check facts, do research for science projects and homework and to use interactive revision guides. Many people are interested in popular science and in finding science news for kids.

What is RSS?

RSS stands for Rich Site Summary and is a well known way of passing on new and frequently changing content from the initial news source to people looking for news headlines on the web. By subscribing to RSS feeds on different sites you can build up a collection of useful news outlets within a webrowser. Many science news sites syndicate their content in this way.

One of the problems with using a web browser to view feeds is that things rapidly become difficult to organise them and increasingly hard to look through them all. 

Science Update puts syndicated RSS feeds into easily viewable screens within web pages devoted to specific news sites. The advantage of getting all the latest news headlines here is that the feeds are indexed by topics and are much easier to find quickly.
