Keyword searching throughout all content in ticTOCs is being planned, as are various ways to be alerted about new content. Where publishers supply DOIs in their TOC RSS feeds, these are also used. A big problem is geting publishers to standardise their TOC RSS content. We're working on that as well.

As a Forrester Report http://www.forrester.com/Research/Document/Excerpt/0,7211,47150,00.html pointed out, many people don't use RSS or have any intention of using RSS, so an important part of ticTOCs is also to allow researchers to view TOC content, and use ticTOCs as a current awareness service, without them having to know anything about RSS.
