Damian Sherman has left a couple of interesting comments on the post at Michael Stephen's Tame The Web that contained my initial notes on RSS for clinicians. I'll repost them here:
I replied (also at Tame The Web, though not yet approved by Michael Stephens at the time of this writing):
Hi Damian! My library doesn't currently use Scopus, so I can't address that directly.
But my library does have access to several medical journals online through Elsevier. An example is American Heart Journal. Logged in as a user, there's no feed in site/sight at it's current issue table of contents or "home."
Therefore, I stand by my criticism that Elsevier is behind on RSS.
Speaking of Scopus, I'd love to see what its RSS feds are like. Damian, if you'd like to set up a time for that, I'd be pleased to feature its RSS capabilities on my own blog at http://davidrothman.net.

Just wanted to state that offer again publically on my own blog. Damian, if you would like to show me how well Scopus dishes out the RSS, I'd be pleased to feature it here in a post.
I think librarians should press vendors to deliver a great product. Great products should be praised when they are good. Scopus may be good. The online access for American Heart Journal through Elsevier…not so much.
