RSS feeds to be sunset in September

Any existing  Web of Science “classic” RSS feeds that have continued to run will stop working in September 2022. New Web of Science does not support creating new RSS feeds. To suggest that we add RSS to new Web of Science, go to Web of Science, click the question mark icon in the bottom corner of the screen, and use the “Suggest a Feature” option.


Thank you for your support and feedback. Together we will bring a better Web of Science to all.
