RSS and Feeds
The BCRC is experimentally hosting an instance of the TinyTinyRSS Feed Reader that can be used to subscribe to (and publish) RSS and Atom feeds. Most modern websites (like this one) can provide a feed (or feeds) of articles, often by author or category -- or even the comments. Most scientific journals also provide feeds that generally include the abstract. If you're suffering from information overload, a feed reader can help you organize things to stay current with a much larger number of information sources than would be possible almost any other way.
