- RFC4287: The Atom Syndication Format

- RFC 4685 - Atom Threading Extensions - an extension for expressing threaded discussions within the Atom Syndication Format
- AtomOwl Vocabulary Specification - an ontology whose aim is to capture the semantics of rfc4287. RFC4287 is a format to syndicate online content, such as weblogs, podcasts, videocasts, etc. Syndication is a helpful way to alert interested readers to changes to a web site, be it to new content or changed content. As AtomOwl captures the semantics of rfc4287 it is easy to convert rfc4287 feeds to AtomOwl statements and thus add them to a triple database, which can the be queried using a SPARQL endpoint. This should then help make very powerful searched for updated content possible.
- Rss20AndAtom10Compared - Atom Wiki - People who generate syndication feeds have a choice of feed formats. As of mid-2005, the two most likely candidates will be RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0.

- What is a River of News aggregator? - "a kind of RSS aggregator. Items are presented in reverse-chronologic order. Each item has a headline, short description, a link to the story, links to the website and feed it came from, a link to its enclosure if it has one, when it was published, when it appeared in the river. It does not have the full text of the article. Text is truncated to less than 500 characters. Markup is removed from the description text. If more than one item from a feed is gathered in a single read of the feed, they are grouped together, so that the feed information is not repeated for each item. Browsing via the vertical scrollbar

Additionally, it defines "complete" feeds to cover the case when a single feed document explicitly represents all of the feed's entries.
