Since one of my coolest (private) projects www.lsis.cc somewhat lacks the expected amount of traffic, I would like to emphasize the core feature in this blobpost – just to make you aware of it or encourage you to tell your friends or have ideas to apply the concept to other areas.
In short LSIS – Life Science Information Service – on a daily basis crawls a list of essential news sources in the field of life sciences and indexes this content after applying a series of quality measures. You can traditionally serach from our search frontend OR save your searches once you are comfortable with the results. You can then give your ‘channel‘ an name and decide if you would like to get new articles matching your saved query pushed onto your email stack or subscribe to it via RSS-link and process it with all your other industry feeds in the feed reader of your choice. All this is completely for free and anonymous!
You can also browse a series of existing channels, which are preset saved searches of current life-science buzz-topics and subscribe to as many as you like via email or RSS.
Let’s say you are interested in
- New Drug Applications
- The company Merck Serono
- The Granulocyte-Colony Stimulating Factor
- Botox / Botulinum Toxin Type A
and whatever else you might want to monitor just save yourself a query and start being alerted on a daily basis – make your colleagues wonder what cool up-to-date industry guru you are.
