There are a few ways to add Interests to a feed.

From the Edit Feed panel:

In the Edit Feed panel, add Interests to a new or existing feed by clicking EditFeed.png Edit Feed in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Click Follow_More_button.png Follow more and search for an Interest.

Tip: When you select a Feed in the Navigation Menu, Meta suggests Related Interests to follow. Look for them to the right of the Feed panel. Click on an Interest to add it directly to the feed you are viewing.

From Search:

In the Search Bar in the top right-hand corner of your screen, enter an Interest. Remember, it can be a scientific concept, researcher or journal. As you search, a drop-down list of Interests will appear, organized by Concepts, Researchers and Journals. Click an Interest to open the Search page. (If you do not find the Interest you are searching for in the drop-down list, select Text Match by pressing Enter or clicking Text Match at the bottom of the drop-down list.)

At the top of the Search page, you have the option to Follow_in_Search_Button.png Follow the Interest you selected. You’ll also see a list of related papers and a Quick Facts box summarizing the papers, researchers and journals associated with that Interest, as well as how many new papers you are likely to get in your feed each day, e.g., 3 papers/day.

Adding Multiple Interests:

Meta doesn’t use Boolean operators such as “AND” and “OR.” But you can emulate the Boolean search operator AND by creating an Intersection between two or more scientific Interests. In the Search page, you can add another Interest to your feed by clicking Add Interest and entering a new search term. Or, look at Related Interests, an interactive list of Concepts, Researchers and Journals related to the Interest you searched. Click a Related Interest and then Follow to add to it your feed. A list of your existing feeds will pop-up. You can choose to Create a New Feed or add new Interests to an existing feed. If you choose to create a new feed, you will be prompted to name it. Press Save.
