ROSA is carried out by the Nature Publishing Group, the scientific publishing arm of Macmillan Publishers Ltd. RSS (RDF Site Summary) news feeds are an increasingly popular means of receiving news and other time-sensitive information. The RSS feed readers enable users to scan a large number of information sources without having to manually visit each website in turn. They also enable webmasters to embed automatically updated links to content of interest at other websites. In this way they greatly enhance data interoperability and hence the information dissemination capabilities of the web. There are however barriers to adoption of RSS. ROSA attempts to overcome these barriers by creating an open source, customisable RSS aggregator and filter, of which the source code will be released under the General Public License so that others can make use of it and build upon it. Project start date: 2003-05-01. Project end date: 2003-08-31. (Excerpt from this source)
