On this site you will find alerts to knowledge and learnings from health systems around the world – a ‘gray literature‘ repository of links. A parallel InfoRx site links to other quality sources of clinical information.
KINSHIP is designed to inform Australian clinicians, policy makers and planners of work done elsewhere that may improve local practice and health system delivery.
The site is an offshoot of FYI email alerts that are sent by an Australian health librarian to clients and provides an archival record of those alerts.
It generally does not include links to journals (unless they are open source).
Other methods are available to receive alerts of new journal content. Publishers offer rss feeds or email alerts. The TicTocs service is also available – “The ticTOCs Journal Tables of Contents service makes it easy for academics, researchers, students and anyone else to keep up-to-date with newly published scholarly material by enabling them to find, display, store, combine and reuse thousands of journal tables of contents from multiple publishers.” Databases such as PubMed through MyNCBI allow saved searches to be set up on topics or titles and for the results to be delivered via email or rss feeds.
