Johns Hopkins RSS Feeds
Johns Hopkins Medicine science and medical news is available as an RSS feed. You may also subscribe and download our audio Podcasts.
What is RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a Web standard for receiving new information from Web sites in which you are interested. Johns Hopkins offers a RSS feed for news releases about our research, patient care and education. When there is new information on Johns Hopkins' Web site, it will be added to the feed automatically and you'll be able to see a summary and link without having to revisit the page.
How to subscribe to the Johns Hopkins RSS
A program known as a feed reader or aggregator can check RSS-enabled Web pages on behalf of any user and display any press releases or articles that it finds. Clicking on the headlines in the reader will take you to the Web site providing the feed.
Many newsreaders are available as standalone programs or extensions of existing programs such as Web browsers. Web-based feed readers and news aggregators require no software installation and make the your feed available on any computer with Web access. RSS feeds typically are linked via an orange rectangle with the letters XML or RSS .
Once you have set up your newsreader, you can subscribe to the Hopkins RSS. To do this, first copy the URL of our XML page: http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/news/media/releases?format=rss. Then follow the instructions for your particular newsreader and paste this location wherever it asks for the location of the service to which you wish to subscribe.
