RSS feeds for geoscience journals
Several months back, there were some posts going around summarizing RSS feed information for various geoscience journals (see Mel’s list from Ripples in Sand here; and see a post from Chris at Highly Allochthonous here). If you aren’t familiar with what an RSS feed is and why you should use them, check out this page.
Building on their information, I compiled the list below. Firstly, I wanted to find feeds to individual journals (not the topical feeds some publishers offer). I started with the list from my recent post about impact factors for sedimentary geology journals and added a few more as well. Secondly, please note that this list is not comprehensive — I am not including journals focused on petrology/mineralogy, volcanology, paleontology/paleobiology, geochemistry, and so on. I encourage others to compile RSS feed info for other Earth science journals (provide a link in the comment thread if you do so).
In the list below, the link goes to additional journal information (for reference) and the RSS feed address is written out fully next to it (so you can copy/paste it wherever you want). Journals are ordered alphabetically within each category.

UPDATE (5/20/09): I’ve updated the list above with feed info thanks to fellow blogger — see this post from The Lost Geologist with even more geoscience journal RSS feed information.
* Or, maybe I couldn’t find it – if you know the feed address for these specific journals, comment below. If feeds don’t exist, then GeoScienceWorld (JSR, Journal of the Geological Society, Palaios), needs to get with the program and offer RSS feeds for the free content (titles and abstracts). E-mail alerts were fine a decade ago and may still work for some people, but I get far too many e-mails already — feeds clean all that up.
